WME&MKM description

WME (Web-based Mathematics Education) is a modern mathematics education system on the Web for contemporary teachers and students, which connects mathematics education content by expert groups (in higher education) to K-12 teachers and students. The WME system conforms to open standards, works with regular browsers, delivers integrated and complete lessons, enables easy customization, provides systematic access to client-side and server-side support, and allows these independently developed components to interoperate seamlessly. The task of our team in Lanzhou University is to localize the WME. That is to say we should produce a environment based on network according to the scope of Chinese primary and secondary school students also provide teachers with a teaching network platform, you can firstly browse Chinese and English to combine the to make use of basic knowledge and practical ability to achieve a more perfect combination through this platform. If you would like to learn more about WME you can read the following documents(pdf format): Document 1 and Document 2 .

MKM (Mathematical Knowledge Management) is a new field at the intersection of Mathematics and Computer Science. WME takes advantage of the enormous amount of knowledge available in current mathematical sources and to organize mathematical knowledge in new ways. By its very nature, WME tests innovative theoretical and technological solutions for content-based systems, interoperability, management of machine understandable information, and the Semantic Web.

Current Projects
1.MathEdit: a mathematical expression editor
2.MathPass: an intelligent mathematical assessment system
3.MathSearch: a formula-based mathematical search engine
4.Mathematics information accessibility for the visually impaired
