  • This spring I am leading 18.821 Project Lab in Mathematics. The Stellar site is open only to the class, but you can learn about it from this OCW profile.
  • A new seminar, the Electronic Mathematics Education Seminar, will meet every other week using Zoom. It's open to all!
  • We have developed a suite of "Mathlets" for use in courses in calculus and differential equations. Many of them are now available in Javascript, which can be easier to run than the original Java. This site contains a training course, introducing the MIT Mathlets and their use.
  • The Mathlets form the basis of my participation in the MIT-Haiti Initiative. Here is a film about this initiative, prepared in conjunction with the visit to MIT by Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, and here is a piece about it written for the MIT Faculty News Letter in August 2016.
  • OpenCourseWare has published 18.05 Introduction to Probability and Statistics. This is a new course designed by Jerry Orloff and Jon Bloom, with assistance from Sanjoy Mahajan and made possible by a grant from the Davis Educational Foundation. It uses a bespoke online text and a flipped classroom pedagogy, and features a central unit on Baysian statistics.
  • The Educational Collaboration Space is a flexible educational collaboration tool built to support formation of communities of educators over time and space. It is a freely available Wordpress site featuring many specially designed plugins. Visit the MIT News item about this. It was also picked up here by Inside Higher Ed. Its development was supported by the MIT Office of Educational Innovation and Technology and the NSF.
  • Crosslinks is a wiki designed to help MIT students make connections between their courses.
  • We have explored the use of group learning in recitations and flashcards in lecture.
  • Current editorial positions:
    Geometry and Topology
    International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education
    Journal of Homotopy and Related Structures
    Tunisian Journal of Mathematics
  • I am on the board of directors of Math for America/Boston.
