IMPLEMENTATION OF A NUMERICAL FITTING PROGRAM AS A DIDACTIC RESOURCE IN TECHNICAL HIGHER EDUCATION

The use of multimedia resources and ICT in teaching has crucial importance in today's information society, especially within the framework established by the European Higher Education Area. One of the most used multimedia learning objects in technical degrees is the Visual Basic environment due to its great capacity and versatility for programming. In the present work, this object is used to implement an algorithm based on the Gauss-Newton method for numerical fitting of experimental data, thus encouraging students' understanding of the subject matter. The developed methodology intends to combine the assimilation of mathematical theory with a brief introduction to programming in Visual Basic. In addition, this tool tries to show numerical fitting as a bridge between physical models and empirical data, that is, between theoretical knowledge and real life, which allows a greater involvement and motivation of the student.
