Developing a 21st Century Global Library for Mathematics Research - 3 views

  •  
    "Developing a 21st Century Global Library for Mathematics Research discusses how information about what the mathematical literature contains can be formalized and made easier to express, encode, and explore. Many of the tools necessary to make this information system a reality will require much more than indexing and will instead depend on community input paired with machine learning, where mathematicians' expertise can fill the gaps of automatization. This report proposes the establishment of an organization; the development of a set of platforms, tools, and services; the deployment of an ongoing applied research program to complement the development work; and the mobilization and coordination of the mathematical community to take the first steps toward these capabilities. The report recommends building on the extensive work done by many dedicated individuals under the rubric of the World Digital Mathematical Library, as well as many other community initiatives. Developing a 21st Century Global Library for Mathematics envisions a combination of machine learning methods and community-based editorial effort that makes a significantly greater portion of the information and knowledge in the global mathematical corpus available to researchers as linked open data through a central organizational entity-referred to in the report as the Digital Mathematics Library. This report describes how such a library might operate - discussing development and research needs, role in facilitating discover and interaction, and establishing partnerships with publishers."

Adaptive Interaction Design for Online Mathematics Education: The Way of the Game - 5 views

  •  
    Abstract: "Together, brain science and learning design inform Adaptive Interaction Design (AID), a technique for curriculum planning and development. Mathematics is a particular case in which AID can help. The Way of the Game is vital to learning design. There are many definitions of "game." Here, we mean game to be the means by which spontaneous play becomes responsible learning. That innovative games figure as the centerpiece of many 21st century curricula is no accident. Games are a critical element in modern theories of learning design especially when related to insights from neuroscience and online learning/teaching methods. But beyond simple gamification, can games provide the disruptive transformation to mathematics education that is required to effect substantive and sustainable improvement? Can we game the educational system to ensure students' success in mathematics? To find out, we will look at the AID process and two sample products for the development of mathematical thinking and practice based on the Way of the Game."

WGBH Innovation Math Challenge - 2 views

  •  
    Description: "The Innovation Fund is a challenge for educators, student teams, gamers, programmers, and anyone who has a great idea to create fun and engaging math educational media.

    WGBH Educational Foundation is seeking up to 100 educational media digital resources (videos, games, interactives, infographics, and manipulatives) that are directed towards middle school students and loosely aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The digital resources selected will be showcased on PBS LearningMedia as part of a middle school math resource collection.

    WGBH is looking for content that engages a wide range of students by reflecting a wide range of culturally responsive perspectives and learning styles.

    Digital resources should be engaging, rich in content and context, and go beyond strictly procedural teaching. In other words, no talking heads."

Q&A: Two Math Teachers Explain How YouTube Changed Their Classrooms - 5 views

  •  
    "Schoolhouse Rock may be the standard for music-based educational videos, but YouTube is leading the renaissance of educational songs and dances. Using music as a lure for educational content isn't new, but it's being widely adopted, thanks to the accessible and sharable nature of YouTube."

Participation in an Online Mathematics Community: Differentiating Motivations to Add - 5 views

  •  
    Abstract: "Why do people contribute content to communities of question-
    answering, such as Yahoo!Answers? We investigated this
    issue on MathOverflow, a site dedicated to research-level
    mathematics, in which users ask and answer questions. Math-
    Overflow is the first in a growing number of specialized Q&A
    sites using the Stack Exchange platform for scientific collab-
    oration. In this study we combine responses to a survey with
    collected data on posting behavior on the site. User behavior
    suggests that building reputation is an important incentive,
    even though users do not report this in the survey. Level of
    expertise affects users' reported motivation to help others,
    but does not affect the importance of reputation building.
    We discuss the implications for the design of communities
    to target and encourage more contributions."

What does mathoverflow tell us about the production of mathematics? - 0 views

  •  
    From the abstract: "ew innovations by math-
    ematicians themselves are starting to harness the power of
    social computation to create new modes of mathematical
    production. We study the effectiveness of one such system,
    and make proposals for enhancement, drawing on AI and
    computer based mathematics. We analyse the content of a
    sample of questions and responses in the community ques-
    tion answering system for research mathematicians,
    math-
    overflow
    . We find that
    mathoverflow
    is very effective, with
    90% of our sample of questions answered completely or in
    part. A typical response is an informal dialogue, allowing
    error and speculation, rather than rigorous mathematical
    argument: 37% of our sample discussions acknowledged er-
    ror. Responses typically present information known to the
    respondent, and readily checked by other users: thus the
    effectiveness of
    mathoverflow
    comes from information shar-
    ing. We conclude that extending and the power and reach of
    mathoverflow
    through a combination of people and machines
    raises new challenges for artificial intelligence and compu
    ta-
    tional mathematics, in particular how to handle error, anal
    -
    ogy and informal reasoning."
