Wanted to get some opinions... The less flattering the better. Flame

After a great response to my free tutoring system /

I realized that there are many people who want to share their
knowledge. (just like in this newsgroup) So, I wanted to enable them
to do great stuff on my site.

I was working like crazy for the last week. I wrote a "Public Solver
System", which is that anyone with a web browser can define a math
problem solver on my site. A solver can be written in perl as well as
in my simple markup language. A solver has definitions of inputs,
outputs, solution, and the check section to verify its correctness.

The name and website of the author etc, are prominently displayed.

It is still very much in beta, but it works. It is beta because I may
soon realize which features I am missing.



Playground with sample solvers:

Feel free to mess with the playground to see how it works.

The coolest feature is that solvers can, for their solution, invoke
other solvers. These solvers solve problems as well as show work.

I know that the presentation style is probably ugly, I will try to
make it nicer. I am basically incapable of making nice pages. I am, at
the moment, interested in opinions on their functionality.

Next step, public lessons, that is user submitted math lessons.


Re: My new "Public Solver System"



thanks for the update. your page composition is looking much better.
unfortunately, I con't offer great feedback on the math, it wasn't my
subject in school. you might look for ways to reduce the required page
refreshes. look around for references to the AJAX programming model.

Thanks, I will look into that.
