The Academic Lab offers members of Leipzig University (i.e., students and instructors) the opportunity to use an innovative eLearning app for teaching and learning purposes free of charge. TeachMatics, developed by MassMatics, is an app that is geared to individual student needs and makes it easier to independently learn necessary skills. The math app supports students in their learning processes by providing problems (some with progressively increasing difficulty) and explanations (e.g., integrated tips, linked theory sections, and complete sample solutions) of mathematical foundations and in the areas of algebra, analysis, statistics, and stochastics.
