Wolfram Delivers Math Demos for RM Curricula


Wolfram Research has partnered with RM Educational Software to deliver interactive visualizations for math curricula, including algebra, trigonometry, and calculus, using applications created in Mathematica. RM Educational Software ia a producer of technology-based curricula. Wolfram is a developer of science and technology software.

Through the partnership, Wolfram has delivered some 200 applications from the Wolfram Demonstrations Project for RM Math Framework Edition, a supplemental math curriculum tool aimed at high school math. The Wolfram Demonstrations Project is a project whose aim is to deliver educational tools for STEM subjects, as well as art and other subjects. Founded a few months back by Mathematica creator Steven Wolfram, the project's website features about 2,000 total "open-code" resources.

According to Wolfram, "For this partnership, educational experts from Wolfram Research and RM Educational Software have composed specific Demonstrations syllabi designed to accelerate high school math curriculums and meet state educational standards. Specific topics include trigonometric functions, integration by parts, limits, Taylor series, complex numbers, systems of equations, vector analysis, differential equations, and more."
