GeoSVG: An SVG Based Tool for Plane Geometry and Mathematics Education

About the Author
Xun Lai

Xun Lai has Master's degrees in both Mathematics and Computer Science. He is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Kent State University, OH, USA. He did research in Control Theory and Numerical Analysis when he was a graduate student in math at Zhongshan University (China) and Kent State University. His current research is on Web technologies for mathematics teaching and learning. In 2003, he joined the research group led by Dr. Paul Wang, Director of the Institute for computational Mathematics at Kent, and participated in the Web-based Mathematics Education (WME) project. Xun is using SVG, an XML application, to develop GeoSVG, a geometry manipulative authoring system that supports teaching and learning mathematics on the Web.
