WMI2, the Student's On-Line Symbolic Calculator
Kovacs, Zoltan
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v42 n4 p469-479 2011
Student activities focused on discovering mathematics play an important role in the teaching and learning process. WebMathematics Interactive (WMI2) was developed to offer a fast and user-friendly on-line web interface to enhance the quality of both theoretical and applied mathematics courses. For the teacher, in the classroom, it provides immediate numerical computations, algebraic manipulations and graphical representations. For our students, WMI2 provides a unique classroom experience in their own Hungarian language that generates various mathematical representations. At home our students have a support system to help them explore mathematical concepts, test their mathematical knowledge and to assist them in their problem solving. WMI2 has been under continuous development since 2002 and has been in classroom use since 2007. It is freely available in 10 languages. (Contains 1 note, 1 table, and 1 figure.)
