Expertise and Experience

The Chair of Mathematics and Mathematics Education at Bayreuth University has got a long-standing expertise concerning conception and development of interactive mathematical software and its implementation at school and university. Well-known successful projects are the prizewinning dynamic mathematical software GEONExT, the open-source-library JSXGraph for visualizing mathematical relationships, and the gesture-based software sketchometry, especially for tablet PCs and smartphones. All these activities are in the focus of the Center for Mobile Learning with Digital Technology.

JSXGraph is a cross-browser JavaScript library for interactive geometry, function plotting, charting, and data visualization in the web browser.

sketchometry.org »

sketchometry is a dynamic mathematics software for tablet PCs and PCs. The construction tool is your finger. sketchometry automatically identifies sketched circles, lines, perpendiculars, and a lot of other objects. You can manipulate these figures interactively, while preserving mathematical relationships.
