This software is still under heavy development. We will try to fix bugs reported promptly and maintain backwards compatibility as we improve the software with new features, but the software comes with no guarantees. If you experience problems, or have feature requests, please report them on Github here. To save us a little time sorting through reported issues, we would appreciate an effort to look in the issues that have already been created and adding any new information to an existing report if one exists. If you do find a bug or want to request a feature that has not been reported, please do not hesitate to file a new issue.
Open Notebook enables math teachers to create documents like worksheets, tests and quizzes easily. It includes native tools for adding rich mathematical content like graphs, equations, number lines and geometric models with ease. Many tools exist for programmers and mathematicians, Latex is a favorite among these audiences, and tools like MS Word provide some basic functionality to edit equations. Unfortunately nothing has available to allow for the creation of complete professional mathematical materials without a steep learning curve, until now.
In addition to making documents for print, Open Notebook provides tools to make your worksheets interactive. The student mode of Open Notebook allows for the assignments to be completed digitally including showing their step-by-step algebra work. We will be working to integrate these documents with popular course management systems like Moodle to enable efficient collection and automated grading of the digital assignments. This will enable teachers to promptly and easily analyze their students' performance on each assignment to identify trouble spots and better prepare for class the next day.
To enable reuse of materials, OpenNotebook also includes facilities to create not only static content, but problem formulas that will let you generate new versions of a worksheet. With these powerful tools, we hope to empower teachers to build a world class library of open educational materials and provide all of the benefits of digital mathematics to every classroom, absolutely free.
Your future of a more productive school day, and more time to spend helping your students awaits. Try Open Notebook now!
