The Worldwide Center of Mathematics (WCoM) is an independent research and learning center for mathematics located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Center of Math was founded in 2008 by Dr. David B. Massey and is an open and affordable textbook and resource publisher focused solely on mathematics. The Center of Math YouTube Channel has been designated an official YouTube Education Partner and offers countless hours of free lecture, instruction and self-help videos. Worldwide textbooks are available digitally or printed and are currently being used in schools across the globe.[1] The Center also hosts, records and shares research talks by faculty from around the world.[2][3]

Technology[edit]

Worldwide textbooks are made into digital PDFs to download and are compatible with the iPad, Kindle Fire, Nook, smartphones and other android based tablets.[19] WCM also implements the Textbooks as a Service (TaaS) model. This allows them to re-release their books in updated versions much more frequently than the three-year cycle many textbook publishers are currently operating on.[20] Lecture videos, solution videos, and study guides corresponding to each chapter are also available from their company website or YouTube.[21]

Partnerships[edit]

  • MATLAB provides a supplementary set of MATLAB code files to accompany Matrices, Vectors, and 3D Math a Game Programming Approach with MATLAB.[22]
  • WebAssign provides a homework system to accompany the Worldwide Calculus series, as well as Introduction to Statistics: Think & Do.[23]
  • WebWork provides a homework system to accompany the Worldwide Calculus series.
