Hello, my name is Mikhail and I am independently investigating

a new way to teach and learn mathematics and physical sciences:


Twine

Twine is an open-source tool for authoring interactive, nonlinear stories. Very popular in the interactive fiction community for its ease of use.

+

MathJax

MathJax is an open source JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all browsers. Rendering example:

$$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}$$

It is also compatible with screen- readers used by people with vision disabilities.

Interactive
Lesson

A lesson that can be "played" by students in any modern browser on any computer in a potentially nonlinear way. Students could explore the formulations and consequences of theorems and formulas at their own pace, motivated by their own curiosity.

Are you a math/statistics/physics teacher, education researcher, or interactive fiction writer?

I am looking for a diverse group of collaborators to help design a prototype lesson. No knowledge of $\LaTeX$ typesetting, Twine, or any programming is necessary as I will be handling all of the technology aspects.

If you are interested in this project and its potential contribution to STEM education, please email me at mikhail [at] mpopov [dot] com. Please introduce yourself and attach a CV or a resume.
