Learning mathematics can be difficult, because the concepts are inherently abstract. For even the most dedicated student, learning a new area of mathematics can be hampered by the effort of translating vague concepts into a workable mental image or model.
Rich, interactive animations, visualizations and assessments can assist students in learning math. For interactive pieces, all curves and graphs were rendered in real time.
|Process:||Under broad direction from the real-life mentor of "Stand and Deliver" protagonist Jaime Escalante, my teams were led by math education researchers from across the world. Working from a rough instructional narratives, I created detailed animation specs. I directed artists to produce static artwork and linear animations. I maintained a visual style guide, wrote code libraries and developed rich, interactive pieces. Instructional reviews were held with a panel of other math education researchers. Usability studies were conducted in situ, in students' classrooms.|
