Simulations provide powerful learning experiences. Simulations which allow the learner to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes are the most effective. Oh, and it helps if they are fun.

The new Wii game, Trauma Center - Second Opinion, looks like a good example.

Now, how to use Wii for teaching mathematics... Anyone seen any examples yet?

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.
