Teaching with digital tools is no panacea for bad teaching or inefficient course design. But we believe certain forms of it can significantly enhance 21st-century students’ understanding of mathematics and premodern cultures.

Thomas Harriot Papers – IIIF Annotation
Prof. Robert Goulding and the NFCDS, in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute and the British Library, are pursuing a crowdsourced annotation project on the whole of Harriot’s manuscript papers. This annotated edition will provide structure to help scholars identify new trends in Harriot’s mathematical and note-taking practice while aiding in the mammoth task of adding order to these notoriously jumbled papers.
