# Digitalizing Higher Mathematics

#### Leverage the advent of technologies and learn higher mathematics — in a different way.

# Redefining Mathematical Education

##### Even Harvard admits that traditional classroom lectures are hardly an effective means of learning. With that in mind, what are you doing to mitigate this inefficiency?

## The stereotypical lecture where the professor is giving exposition of textbook-type material to the students — I think that type of exposition can be done better with online video or by an interactive-tutorial format.

## [S]itting passively and taking notes is just not a way of learning. Yet lectures are 99 percent of how we teach!

— Eric Mazur,

Balkanski Professor of Physics and Applied Physics,Harvard University, April 2012

## [W]ebsites and laptops have been around for years now, but we haven’t fully thought through how to integrate them with teaching so as to conceive of courses differently.
