The potential of authoring creative electronic mathematics books in the MC-squared project

The potential of authoring creative electronic mathematics books in the MC-squared project
The European ‘MC-squared’ project is fostering several so-called ‘Communities of Interest’ (CoI) in a number of European countries. These communities work on designing and developing digital, interactive, creative, mathematics textbooks, called c-books. The c-books are made in the online digital authoring environment in which authors can construct books with various interactive ‘widgets’. Here we demonstrate some of the key features of the authoring environment and suggest how c-books can function as a useful catalyst for teacher professional development.

Abstract

The European ‘MC-squared’ project is fostering several so-called ‘Communities of Interest’ (CoI) in a number of European countries. These communities work on designing and developing digital, interactive, creative, mathematics textbooks, called c-books. The c-books are made in the online digital authoring environment in which authors can construct books with various interactive ‘widgets’. Here we demonstrate some of the key features of the authoring environment and suggest how c-books can function as a useful catalyst for teacher professional development.
