Adaptive Learning Module for Mathematical Functions
Advanced technology drives the U.S. economy.
Ultimately, development of advanced technology depends on the ability
to exploit the vast body of already codified mathematical and scientific
knowledge, and also to incorporate advances as they occur.
The objective of this project is to construct a prototype Adaptive
Learning Module for Mathematical Functions (ALMMF).
The ALMMF will be intimately connected to a new framework, called the
Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF), which is under active
development as a fundamental new component of the professional scientific
infrastructure, and as a foundation upon which to build highly
interactive Web-based modules for pedagogical as well as professional
purposes in a wide variety of specialized settings.
The DLMF will meet the rigorous criteria for acceptance as NIST
Standard Reference Data, and the ALMMF will demonstrate some of the ways that
resources like the DLMF can be used to help meet the needs of students,
trainers and educators for a modern learning system in the field of
mathematical functions.
