Implicit Surfaces of Space functions

Besides 3D Graphs that draws functions with (x,y) as parameters, you are now able to view implicit surfaces of a function in a graph with MathTouchBook.


Surfaces are then defined by space functions with (x,y,z) parameters, and will draw a skin where the value is zero ! Optional parameter t stands for time and will allow to animate anything as you can see in the Video.


A special method for computing values were used: more than 200 000 calls must be done through the whole graph of each function when the shape changes, and the CPU can hardly do that. The solution was to reuse the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) function exporter: It translates the function into a source that can be compiled directly with OpenGL drivers, so it is executed 1000 times faster by the Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) of your Smartphone or Tablet.


The new update also brings a better keyboard , with fractional numbers, and many improvements and corrections.

What strategies do you use to help your students overcome their psychological barriers to doing well in math?

What strategies do you use to help your students overcome their psychological barriers to doing well in math? | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
As teachers, we are in a unique position to positively influence girls’ attitudes toward math. We can actively counter beliefs and biases that girls aren’t as good as boys in math. We can expose girls to successful female role models who can impact their interest and performance in mathematics. And we can let girls know that they have the right to perform well in math because they can. When we do these things, girls will begin to see themselves as equal to boys in math because they are.

Read this if you are not a confident math instructor. However, it will take a commitment to improve. Start now with a solid PD math series complemented with a supportive cohort and continuing feedback. Be willing to invest the time to read and reflect. Math and science instruction is certainly not one of our strength as educators.
