Mathematics Illuminated

Mathematics Illuminated | technologies |
John Dalziel's insight:

Mathematics Illuminated is a thirteen-part, well-organized learning resource/series for adult learners and practitioners.
Thirteen chapters with...
   - lessons,
   - videos, and
   - Java applets
...taking users through mathematics history, from the Pythagoreans to the cutting-edge mathematics used to reveal the shape of the universe.

The unit on combinatorics is especially interesting.

Code Monster from Crunchzilla

If practitioners are looking for a fun way to introduce a learner to programming Crunchzilla’s Code Monster is a 'live' introduction to basic programming concepts.


How does Code Monster work?

Using JavaScript users are guided through the programming experience by a blue monster that asks questions about the code and suggests courses of action.


If learners (or practitioners) play long enough they will progress from simple variables to more complex ideas like conditionals, expressions, and more.


NOTE This isn't a comprehensive programming curriculum (it doesn't claim to be) but it’s a great way to introduce people of all ages to programming.
