The room will be open half an hour before the event. Everybody will have an open mike and whiteboard access at all times. The full recording will be linked here.

Some of the questions:

  • How can we share math online?
  • What social networks and virtual worlds are more supportive of math conversation?
  • Is it OK to use plain text math e.g. sqrt(5^3)?
  • Deaf and blind user considerations

This event is a part of the ongoing Math 2.0 interest group conversation series. Always-discussed questions:
  • networks and communities creating social math objects
  • platforms for remote communication of this interest group
  • our projects and collaboration
  • publishing efforts and bibliography
