Conrad Wolfram is presenting Mathematica, computer-based math and the new era of STEM and you are invited (or the maths teachers at you school)
Conrad Wolfram, physicist, mathematician, businessman and technologist is Director of Strategic Development and European Co-Founder/CEO of the Wolfram group of companies. Conrad is also the world’s leading advocate for a fundamental shift of maths education to become computer-based, arguing that this is the key way to address issues in global maths education and move forward.
His widely acknowledged 2010 TED talk laid out the rationale and roadmap for this rethink and the same year he founded computerbasedmath.org (CBM) to drive implementation of the change.
All Victorian Government secondary schools have his application Mathematica available to them via EDUSTAR
