Summary
This project will achieve its aims by creation of a flexible electronic framework through which students have access to a very large number of illustrative examples, problems and questions that, cover a wide range of fundamental mathematical statistical and quantitative skills. The key components of the electronic framework is a system that: automatically generates a suite of random questions and corresponding fully-worked, formatted solutions to every question, clearly and unambiguously reproducing the steps that students would typically take, thus enabling individualised inquiry-based learning; provides students with a mechanism for concentrating on exactly those concepts which cause them difficulties, thus improving their technical and creative abilities; can be used as a powerful learning aid by providing support for both introductory and advanced mathematical concepts and processes; Makes use of interactive web-based presentation of solutions, allowing students to work in a self-directed manner; allows instructors to efficiently and easily create resources for illustrative examples, practice materials and potentially for individualised assessment and is directly usable in all discipline areas that require quantitative skills.
