ab: 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?
