The mission of our organization is to improve the quality of mathematical education, enhance the transfer of mathematical thinking into other classes, and increase students’ ability to apply rigorous mathematics outside the classroom. Our primary tool for carrying out this mission is “math machines”—simple devices which give an immediate, physical, dynamic expression to “abstract” mathematical equations. FIRST TIME HERE? You might want to read the rationale behind this project and view photos and evaluations from past workshops.



What's New? 

October 15, 2014.
October and November will be busy months for us, with presentations at three NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) regional meetings in Indiana (Oct. 30), Virginia (Nov. 13) and Texas (Nov. 20), plus followups to our summer workshops. We are also continuing development of the LACI Smart Cart--particularly LACI's ability to achieve precise graph-matching motions for virtually any free-form function of either x=f(t) or v=f(t). Take a look at what LACI can do in our latest YouTube video.
