Thanks! It does look really nifty. But there has not been a lot of "worksheets" designed by others in the community yet. I really look forward to seeing positive change on the site.

Hi Laron
Thank you for your feedback !!!
You observation is right in the sense that though we have significant number of unique visitors to the site we don't have many users publishing their own version of worksheets.

however we know for a fact hat many users are using the builder to create worksheets and locally saving it in their machines. ((through the questions we receive on to our emails) .

A new version of Math Disk will be released on the first week of September with improvement documentation and "how to do's" .Moreover starting from September Math Disk will be presented in many international education conferences which would give its required visibility.

Hi Thahir,
Interesting - just a littile bit of feedback. As soon as you mentioned 'worksheets', I almost didn't click - I'm glad I did, now, but I thin the term 'worksheet' brings with it all kind of terrible connotations - in my district we are trying to get away from the 'worksheet' mentality and move towards a more exploratory approach to STEM - which is something that I think your site encourages.

Keith,

To me, to call it a worksheet or not is just a matter of semantics. I mean the creation is what it is (tautologically speaking) and can be useful in teaching and learning no matter what we call it. What would you call it within your educational framework and why?
Thank you!
Cheers,
Laron

Thank you for the feedback
It is very useful to know the term "worksheet" doesn't hold the same appeal to all teachers.

One of well known Math Educator sent me a email calling Mathdisk a "Live Text Book" because, the tool gives equal importance to both symbolic and visual aspects of the mathematics.I found the term "Live Text Book" interesting.Do you feel "live textbook" brings in the same negative connotations as "Worksheet"?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts

Hi Laron and Thahir,
With respect, I don't think that calling it a 'worksheet' is a matter of semantics. I think the ways that we name things is important, and, as I mentioned earlier, I almost didn't click on the link because of the term 'worksheet'. If we understand learning as the shared construction of meaning, then 'worksheets' have no place in it, as they are relics of previous models of pedagogy where learning is something that was done to students, rather than something that they are a part of.

With that in mind, I would suggest including something like 'user-created' or 'interactive' in the name. While live text book is interesting, I don't think it sufficiently captures the way that users can modulate the application.

Hope that helps.

Keith,
Thank you for your suggestions.For time being , we have trying to prefix the term "interactive" where ever the word worksheet appears in our documentation.Internally within MathDisk, we are trying to come up with a better term without disrupting our earlier themes around the word "worksheet".
