Learning math via a blog and a wiki

By Murray Bourne, 14 Oct 2006

I came across this AP Calculus AB blog where the contributions are made by the math class. There is a great mix of posts on the concepts being studied, on how to do problems, some inspirational pieces and jokes.

They also have a wiki for sharing solutions. I quote:

This is a place for students to help each other learn by writing a collaborative solutions manual! This counts for marks. You must make at least two edits/contributions to the wiki. One must be a significant contribution and the other must be a constructive modification.

It's sad that we feel that we always have to assign marks to get students involved.

Anyway, good luck to them.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
