Free sigma workshop: Introduction to Numbas
Hosted by the Mathematics Resource Centre, University of Bath on Thursday 31st August, 10:30-16:30.
Numbas is a free and open source platform for authoring of mathematical questions. Features include:
- randomised content
- LaTeX rendering of mathematical notation while you type
- instant feedback to students on tests
- regeneration of randomised practice questions for students
This event will provide:
- a hands-on introduction to Numbas, including logging on to the mathcentre editor, selecting questions to make tests, and writing your own questions.
- a resource swap shop. Opportunity for all delegates to share information on a resource they use.
- information about using Numbas to fill the gaps in mathcentre.
The workshop will be primarily led by Christian Lawson-Perfect (e-Learning Officer, School of Mathematics and Statistics, Newcastle University).
