Math Education Resources

photoRaniere Silva is an active member of the Open Education Working Group and would like to share an open education project he is supporting with us. The Math Education Resources is a volunteer-run project that provides substantial learning resources to undergraduate students taking math courses at University of British Columbia in Vancover or elsewhere. The wiki provides free hints and peer-reviewed solutions to previous final exam questions from UBC’s math courses. Students can search questions by topic, watch mini video lectures for each topic, or use the difficulty ratings from their peers to guide their studies. In the above video Bernhard Konrad shares an overview of Math Education Resources. Bernhard Konrad is a PhD student in Applied Mathematics at UBC in Vancouver. Under the supervision of Dan Coombs his research focus is HIV within- and between-host dynamics. As a side project, Bernhard is part of MER, a team effort by UBC math grad students with a passion for effective and open education. maths
