Ian Wild

A physicist by profession, Ian’s career has always focused primarily on communication and learning. Fifteen years spent in private industry designing communication systems software eventually saw Ian concentrate on the development of accessibility and learning aids for blind, partially sighted, dyslexic and dyscalculic computer users - whilst also working part-time as a math and science tutor. Teaching only part-time meant not spending as much time with his students as he would have wanted. This and his background in learning and communication technology

In Detail

Moodle is a popular e-learning platform that is making inroads into all areas of the curriculum. Using moodle helps you to develop exciting, interactive, and engaging online math courses. But teaching math requires use of graphs, equations, special notation, and other features that are not built into Moodle. Using Moodle to teach Mathematics presents its own challenges.

The book will show you how to set-up a Moodle course to support the teaching of mathematics. It will also help you to carefully explore the Moodle plugins that allow the handling of equations and enable other frequently used mathematical activities.

Taking a practical approach, this book will introduce you to the concepts of converting mathematics teaching over to Moodle. It provides you with everything you need to include mathematical notation, graphs, images, video, audio, and more in your Moodle courses. By following the practical examples in this book, you can create feature-rich quizzes that are automatically marked, use tools to monitor student progress, employ modules and plugins allowing students to explore mathematical concepts. You'll also learn the integration of presentations, interactive math elements, SCORM, and Flash objects into Moodle. It will take you through these elements in detail and help you learn how to create, edit, and integrate them into Moodle.

Soon you will develop your own exciting, interactive, and engaging online math courses with ease.

Teach mathematics using the Moodle e-learning platform

Approach

The book presents the reader with clear instructions for setting up specific activities, based around an example maths course (Pythagorean Theorem) with plenty of examples and screenshots. No Moodle experience is required to use the book, but the book will focus only on activities and modules relevant to teaching mathematics. We will assume that the reader has access to a working installation of Moodle. The activities will be appropriate for teaching math in high schools and universities.

Who this book is for

The book is aimed at math teachers who want to use Moodle to deliver or support their teaching. The book will also be useful for teachers of "mathematical sciences", or courses with a significant mathematical content that will benefit from the use of some of the tools explored in the book.
