Example from South Korea

The example from Korea suggests a balance between information provided and student-generated data.

How Fast is the Tsunami? is the example shared. 

The format suggested includes the following part
(1) Information to set scenario - this can be some visual texts or videos (for this topic, a video is suitable)
(2) Links to provide better understanding of keywords and concepts
(3) Links for scaffold - differentiated learning where students who need more help can seek scaffolds while more able students will proceed without these scaffolds
(4) Students can use the e-book as a journal where they can enter their responses and sent to the teacher or shared with their peers.

I like the feature for differentiated instruction. We can also provide links for advanced students to receive challenging problems to extend and deepen their learning.

Ronel also suggested embedding, say, Excel.

    -> solving equations and finding roots of an equation using Grpahical representation of the functions
    -> Finding Maxima and Minima of a function as well as Point of inflection of a function
    -> Calculating for different values of x
    -> Differentation of a function
    -> Eigen value and vector of a matrix
    -> Binary, hexadecimal, octal calculator
    -> conversion of units
    -> Automated saving of equations.


    -- will help you concentrate on the concept rather that remembering unnecessary equations and calculating them.
    -- Give you the picturization of the function like Sinx / x how the function looks or x-[x]
    -- helps you to visualize the function and its properties
    -- It gives the location of the point of intersection of the graphs, hence better visvuilazing.
    -- its hard to remember all sorts of the conversion, it helps to carry out these conversion on fingre tip


    With the advancement of technology and complexity counting has become very complex with evolution, mathematics has evolved itself into
    hard language like that of latin.

    But the processing speed of computers have solved the problem of complex equations, Pentiums, i processors helped solving equations on
    computer but with globlization mobility is growing at exponential pace, for the same purpose the mobile technology shall be used
    to solve the equations

    HIggsBoson Solutions Pvt Ltd has put its endevaour in leaveraging the capability of android OS to solve matghematical problems
    in its application (Link of the application) it has provided mathematicians to calculate the roots of equation using graphical representation of the function, caclulating Maxima and minima for a function and also finding the change of concavity i.e. Point of inflection.The application also finds the differentiation of the equation.

    It has also provided a way to find eigen values and vectors of the matrix, Inverse of the matrix. It laso provides calculator for solving hexadecimal, binary, octal and decimal calculations.

    The scientific calculator helps in solving complex equations ranging from complex composite equations to logarithimic and trignometric equations, it provided variety of unit conversions to help experts to concentrate on the crux of the problem rather concentrating on long equations

    For Students - Engineering, Maths

    F(x) = x^2-5x+6 and g(x) = sin x
    is it tedious to solve this equaution? NO there is rescue operation given by the application

    Now, solving these two equations will require 3 pages of solution while it doesn't add to the conceptual understanding of the problem, if it is deal in graphs it would have been solved in few lines and would have contributed in better understanding of a function. The application helps in plotting accurate graphs and find point of intersection of the equations. The application also find the roots of the equation of f(x) and g(x). The handy nature of the application brings immense help to those who find it diificult to plot the graph manually, same arises with the graphical properties of a function.

    As a third user

    The graph plotting functionality and graph properties are awesome. It give accurate results and is very easy to use. I searched a lot and found only one android which could produce results with such accuracy.
