Lots happening at Fig Manor as we try to save the world from lousy math software.
As you may have noticed, we launched our new calculator design last week. The functions are separated by area of math, so that it's easier to locate and use the functions you want at any given time. From a back-end standpoint, this will also allow teachers to throttle the math engine so that their students can see only the functions relevant to their class.
Getting Ready for SXSWedu
We're also in the home stretch, gearing up for SXSW, including the SXSWedu conference in two weeks, where many FastFig friends will be presenting and talking (we'll be listening and taking notes). Prediction: Our favorite panel will be the one that calls edtech entrepreneurs "superheroes," and features our friends from Hoot.me, KinderTown, LearnBop and Notehall (now Chegg), but there are also great panels on STEM education and speakers from Bill Gates (yes, that Bill Gates) to David Robinson (yes, that David Robinson).
