Please notice that the abstract is intended to cover two submission types: paper presentation followed by freestyle session (interactive exercises): The introductory mathematics course for engineering students at DTU is undergoing a substantial renewal process. Teachers and students collaborate to optimize first year mathematics by using today’s computer technologies and internet facilities. The session will be opened by a talk where the ambitions and ideas behind the renewal are presented. Especially we will explore the obvious challenges that the authors of e-Notes are facing. The second part of the session offers hands-on exercises for the participants where the relations between the e-Notes, the interactive exercises and other online materials will be demonstrated.
