Explorative Math Learning
MUMIE is an open-source e-learning platform for learning and teaching mathematics and computer science. It grew out of the needs of practical teaching at the interface between high-school and university. MUMIE is highly flexible and can be integrated with other learning and content management systems. Its courses and high quality course material is easily adjusted to any kind of pedagogical scenario. It has built in learning and training environments with wiki-like dedicated social networks for virtual tutorials and self-organized learning enhancing cognitive and meta-cognitive skills. Powerful authoring tools support the production of new content. This opens the door to new, challenging and more efficient pedagogical scenarios.
MUMIE platform and content is the result of a cooperative effort by leading universities in Europe supported by the company integral-learning.
The same content constituents, like a definition or a theorem, can be used in courses, worksheets or stand alone.
Problems can be personalized by random numbers or random choice from a pool of problems. Thus, each student has his or her own problem to solve.
EASY TO USE
Both the system itself and the authoring tools have modern and self-explanatory user interfaces.
Most content is available in several languages. Developing multi-lingual content is easy.
Lots of interactive applets for visualizing and explore complex mathematical concepts.
NO EXTRA KNOWLEDGE NEEDED
For users no special skills are needed. Developing interactive visualizations requires modest programming skills.
The most important outcome from the survey is that 82% of the students (strongly) recommend to use Mumie in the Linear Algebra course. From the analysis of the grades it can also be seen that participating in Mumie improves the LA grade, on average it can even mean the difference between a pass or a fail on the final LA exam for a large number of students.
