Mathematics On A Digital Platform
As a digital publisher on topics pertaining to higher mathematics, we strike to leverage 21st-century technologies to deliver professionally-produced academic materials for future mathematicians, scientists, and other related professionals.
Redefining the bar of mathematical literacy and excellence through teaching and dissemination of educational materials in higher mathematics.
Effective skill/knowledge acquisition and retainment — especially in the context of abstract concepts — involves the strategic uses of cognitive technologies and principles.
Improvised Interactive Tutoring
Much like a drum clinic, improvised interactive tutoring consists of teaching what people need by inventing up lectures/problems on the fly and have students “teach” the materials — conversation style.. This teaching methodology can serve to complement or replace the traditional one-size-fits-all educational paradigm.
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!

[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.

(to which we muttered “You got it. 🙂 “)
That mock ad was hilarious and makes my day. Any new one coming in the near future?

One of the things that makes this site so great is how quickly you guys reply and update your articles/guides. Rest assured you’ve found a regular visitor in me, and I will share this with everyone I deem fit — calling it my dirty secret to Math!
