Summary: What can a handwriting recognition system like MathPen offer? The author discusses the ideas with a mathematics teacher in a secondary school. Notation in mathematics is a double-edged tool. It enables complex mathematical ideas to be communicated unambiguously throughout different cultures and geographical regions of the world. Yet this very notation is a significant disincentive when it comes to interactive dialogue using virtual worlds. Will MathPen be the game-changer when it comes to communicating with mathematical notation?
