Reading math notation sucks.
A big focus when learning math is remembering all the different symbols. It distracts from focusing on what the equation is actually communicating. Many people miss the beauty of math because we don’t teach it in an intuitive way.
The author of Mindstorms writes that schools, unfortunately, teach kids math through rote memory. We give kids no intuitive sense of what the equations are doing and many come to hate the subject. His suggestion is that we should teach these subjects through code instead. The subject becomes much more interactive and kids truly understand how things work.
I figured if this doesn’t exist I should solve it. I may not be able to easily convert a calculus or statistics textbook. But, I could start a GitHub repo. So that’s what I did!
I’m a big believer in “being the change you want to see” and building what you think should exist. If you feel the same way and find this interesting I hope you’ll submit some PRs to add new equations!
