Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contribution


Traditional whiteboards are a common medium for mathematics education, and are particularly suited to the high school and college level where conceptual understanding of the subject matter is emphasized above procedural understanding. Although considerable work has been done to apply sketch - based interaction to ma thematics learning, very few have addressed this from the perspective of teaching mathematics in a conventional classroom environment. We provide a set of design considerations for dynamic whiteboards in instructional contexts and present an embodiment of these considerations in our prototype, MathSketch.
