ONLINE SELF-LEARNING ACTIVITIES IN MATHEMATICS BY USING A QUIZ WITH GOOGLE FORMS

Our aim in this work is to apply Google Forms as an online tool to design a self-learning activity that helps to the students to consolidate fundamental mathematical subjects in the Computer Science degree. The abstract nature of certain issues as numerical successions, convergence of series, the applications of series as an infinite sum or positive terms and their classification (applied to for example, the estimation the computational cost of designed algorithms designed to solve complex engineering problems) make necessary to design new activities that encourage the students practice of these concepts, that learn how to connect with the computer discipline, and on the other hand that will be attractive to perform. The developed methodology is the following: using Google Forms we design some tests that review all these aspects and that at the same time encourage student participation through the use of their mobile devices. When the student finishes, he can check his score and detect in which aspects he finds more difficulty. Initially the form was sent to a total of 160 students who compose the subject infinitesimal Calculus of degree in Computer Engineering. Of these, only 57 performed the test. The obtained results were collected in an excel table and analyzed descriptively using SPSS. Finally, we analyzed numerically how this activities influence the final evaluation results of the subject through the statistical analysis of their influence by studying the correlation between the variables involved.
