There are students everywhere who struggle to understand the concept of math and are often disengaged. Math has made students of all ages feel discouraged when they don’t understand, bored of the lengthy formulas, and even scared to try it again, which is why there needs to be an alternative learning approach.
One student of the RNSIT Student Branch and ten IEEE volunteers have created Project Manim- An Animation Library to teach students math lessons through video animations. This will spark better imaginative thinking among students because they will become intrigued by the animated videos, which will engage them with the math lesson.
The team will create the videos on their laptop using graphic cards to code and develop the library. Each video will take between a week and a month to make depending on the math lesson’s difficulty level. They will distribute them via a hard disk and pen drives to different digital platforms, such as YouTube.
This is an open-source project that can be found on GitHub and is written in the python programming language. This means the video code can be accessed, modified, and downloaded by anyone, which allows the teachers to have the videos for their lessons.
EPICS in IEEE has granted the team $300 to get started with this video library. The team will be working with RNS Institute of Technology, which is a university in Bangalore.
