Math-Bridge Platform


To download and install Math-Bridge platform on your server, your organization has to become an associated partner of the project: application form

The Math-Bridge server application is based on Java, so it can run on a wide variety of machines, from PCs to servers. To run your own Math-Bridge server, you need to meet these system requirements:

Software

  • Java 1.6 or better
  • Unix, Windows or MacOS
  • An installation of YACAS (Computer Algebra System)


As a browser, we recommend the latest version of Firefox.

Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer 9 or better work with Math-Bridge, but are not our main target platforms.

Hardware


As system performance is influenced by many factors, preciserequirements are hard to set.


As a rough guideline, your production server should have lots of RAM and offer a high I/O bandwith. The more concurrent users your system must support, the bigger your server must be.


A modern desktop machine is able to support at least a handful of users. We have run successful tests with 400 concurrent users on a Sun Fire T2000 with 8 cores and 8 GB of memory.

BasWis Collection
This collection covers basic mathematical concepts and skills:
  • numbers (natural, integers, rationals and reals) and operations on these numbers, together with properties of these operations
  • exponential functions and their properties
  • negative and rational exponents
  • exponential equations

It contains two pre-defined courses:
  • an introductory course on numbers, calculations with variables, functions, linear and quadratic functions, equations. This course makes also use of the Vienna collection, the Kassel-Paderborn collection and the Ideas collection
  • a sequel on the introductory course, with exponential functions, more advanced equations, and an introdcution to differential calculus. This course makes also use of the Vienna collection and the Ideas collection
