AbstractThe project team is developing a prototype of WebFluidMath, a software programto support students who are learning basic algebra principles. To use the Web FluidMath program, students will write math expressions and make drawings on the screen of apen-enabled tablet computer (e.g., iPad, Android, Microsoft Surface). The software will recognize the handwritten math formulae and generate solutions in the form of algebraic expressions, computations, graphs, and dynamic animations. This project will provide specific exercises to supplement or replace classroom lessons addressing Common Core State Standards in mathematics. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, teachers are able to integrate it within the classroom environment, and students are engaged with the prototype.
