About the ASYMPTOTE Project

ASYMPTOTE [Adaptive Synchronous Mathematics Learning Paths for Online Teaching in Europe] is a project aiming at the development of an effective, powerful and user-friendly digital tool for online mathematics education. The ASYMPTOTE project enables teachers to conduct synchronous and adaptive math lessons online with a low barrier for students – only a smartphone is required on their side.

In the project, a web portal including mathematics tasks on secondary and university level will be created. In the web portal, teachers can select prepared tasks or create own tasks for their mathematics teaching. The students solve tasks which are provided by a digital learning path on their smartphone. Hereby, they receive systemic and synchronous feedback on their entered solution and work on tasks adopted to their individual learning progress. In addition, it provides a learning analytics tool for an effective diagnosis and evaluation of the students’ progress. It further allows assessment and the use of adaptive elements in online distance learning.

The ASYMPTOTE project is co-funded by the ERASMUS+ grant program of the European Union (grant no. 2020-1-DE01-KA226-HE-005738). Please find more information about the project in the following.

Update from May 07, 2024: The ASYMPTOTE app was awarded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research and the OeAD – Agency for Education and Internationalization as an app that is particularly conducive to learning.
