Math World

Background

The way many aspects of mathematics are taught currently rely heavily on the students having to learn facts and theorems without fully understanding the underlying fundamentals. This is often because the fundamentals often require the student to have strong spatial reasoning, a skill that takes time to develop. Currently, students need to analyze three dimensional and higher structures through the limitations of two dimensional representation. If a system exists that allows for users to present and analyze structures and data in three dimensions, students may learn the underlying concepts at a deeper level much quicker.

Objective

We are setting out to develop an educational tool that we hope will be used in math classrooms as both a teaching aid and an exploration tool used by students. The project will be deliverable as a standalone application so that users don’t have to download any other software to use the app. Our main objective is to develop an app that can help students connect with the course material better. We feel like this tool, by enhancing the visualization of certain math concepts, will help to attain this goal.
