(7) Discussion of Replication Potential:

Describe how your work might be a model for others to emulate.
Could this application be put to use in other places or contexts?

Everything I do is entirely open-source. Everything needed for each web exercise is in the source code available to users (View-source), including the Javascript. People with a bit of HTML and Javascript savvy can cut-and-paste the source code, tweak it to their needs, and serve to students.

Schools could re-order content to fit their curriculum. They could add server-side features: secure online testing, collection and reporting of student data, online tutoring—to make a complete mathematics learning environment.

Textbook publishers should see great potential in what my web site offers. They could take the exercise sets at the end of each chapter and offer an online “randomized” version, so students will never run out of problems. (Indeed, doing something like this for textbook publishers would be a great job for me.)

With the current interest in national math standards, this site can serve as a model of how to prepare students for the national math objectives. (This would also be a fantastic job for me, and I would be uniquely qualified for such work.)

Here are my terms of use, which are linked to from each of my pages:


I encourage people to use these materials, share them, learn from them, and tweak them to suit your individual needs, thereby promoting the use of MathML to display mathematics on the web, subject to the following conditions:

So—yes—a major goal of this site is to show people what MathML can do for online mathematics teaching and learning. The more people who “copy” what I do, the better for the world.
