Emmy’s Workshop

Individualized algebra tutor

Emmy’s Workshop is part of a research project to improve computer-based educational systems. Learners can work through an entire problem before receiving feedback. Mathematical algorithms analyze how the problem was solved, and estimate how well the learner understands a variety of mathematical skills. Students and faculty built the application using Google Web Toolkit – then brought us on to help design & implement a responsive interface.

The first meeting I had with Miriam helped me decide. She was excited about the project but also realistic about potential issues with the codebase.

The OddBird team did a great job developing the brand for my algebra website and revamping the site to reflect both new aesthetics and better practices for making it look wonderful on a variety of devices.

I appreciated how professional the team was – keeping me informed about the process and offering me excellent choices about what direction to go at key points.
