The SlugMath Wiki is under heavy development!
Who created this site?
This site was created by Martin Weissman, a.k.a. Marty.
Who funds this site?
This looks like Wikipedia. Is it?
The online encyclopedia Wikipedia] contains over 2.5 million publicly editable English articles. Remarkably, the software and hardware which powers these millions of pages, accessed and edited by people around the world, is relatively small. The open-source, stable, and well-supported software powering Wikipedia is the mediawiki software package. The SlugMath project is powered by the same Mediawiki software, which has proven its reliability and scalability.
In contrast to Wikipedia, the SlugMath project is not publicly editable, and it has a far more rigid structure. Wikipedia might be comparable in structure to a slime mold -- a large organism which succeeds partly from the independence, dedication, and resilience of its parts (over 75,000 active authors). The SlugMath project has a solid skeleton built upon the expertise of a very small group, and further content, while more flexible, is attached carefully to the skeleton.
What's up with the cute yellow slug sitting on top of the pi?
The SlugMath logo (the banana slug on top of the pi at the top-left corner of the screen) was generously created by Jeremy Leavitt at Beach Bum Design. The banana slug is the mascot of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
I want to be a part of the project. What do I do?
Right now, the project is under closed development. But feel free to contact Marty if you would like to participate in the future. There will be ample opportunities for collaborative development in the future.
