Call of Free Mathematica Engine from KeTCindy

Abstract: Wolfram Research launched Free Wolfram Engine for Developers on May in 2019. Recently the function set to call this engine has been implemented to KeTCindy. It mainly consists of Wlfun, Wltex and CalcbyW corresponding to Mxfun, Mxtex and CalcbyM in case of Maxima. I will explain how to use them and show some examples.

KeTCindyJS content with sliders and textboxes and its use in the classsroom

Abstract: CindyJS is a framework to create interactive mathematical content for the web and KeTCindyJS is a library to enhance CindyJS with many additional functions. In this talk, I will present examples of interactive KeTCindy content with sliders and textboxes, and their use in the classroom.

Going beyond maths: New challenges for the KeTCindy team

Abstract: KeTCindy has come to a degree of maturity where applications beyond mathematics are plausible. In this talk, I will comment on some problems coming from physics and engineering which I think could be successfully tackled and then ported to the classroom.
