Unizor Education

Full Description: 

I think, our high schools do not provide an adequate level of knowledge in such an important subject as mathematics. I am sure, many young students would welcome an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of this subject. I'd like to introduce you to my educational site Unizor, which is created with an idea to redirect studying mathematics from simple memorization of facts, usually forgotten immediately after passing an exam, towards development of intelligence, creativity and analytical thinking, which I consider the real purpose to study mathematics and important throughout the whole life, regardless of profession.

Texas A&M University in its newsletter has published a short article "Creative Minds Through the Art of Mathematics" about Unizor at
http://disted6.math.tamu.edu/newsletter/newsletters_new/2012_4_07.pdf

Unizor is completely free and has no advertising. Its sole purpose is to distribute knowledge in its purest form. Students can find it a valuable addition to a standard "one size fits all" course of mathematics in high school. Parents and supervisors of registered students will find it invaluable as a tool to facilitate an educational process that includes enrollment and exams for those they supervise. Unizor is open for expansion by other contributors, who in a controlled environment would like their educational program to be included in the Unizor curriculum as authors.
