Moodle 1.9 Math
The book presents the reader with clear instructions for setting up specific activities, based around an example maths course (Pythagorean Theorem) with plenty of examples and screenshots. No Moodle experience is required to use the book, but the book will focus only on activities and modules relevant to teaching mathematics. We will assume that the reader has access to a working installation of Moodle. The activities will be appropriate for teaching math in high schools and universities. The book is aimed at math teachers who want to use Moodle to deliver or support their teaching. The book will also be useful for teachers of "mathematical sciences", or courses with a significant mathematical content that will benefit from the use of some of the tools explored in the book.

About Ian Wild
A physicist by profession, Ian's career has always focused primarily on communication and learning. Fifteen years spent in private industry designing communication systems software eventually saw Ian concentrate on the development of accessibility and learning aids for blind, partially sighted, dyslexic, and dyscalculic computer users - whilst also working part-time as a math and science tutor. Teaching only part-time meant not spending as much time with his students as he would have wanted. This and his background in learning and communication technology seeded his interest in virtual learning environments.
