Founded by Conrad Wolfram, computerbasedmath.org has partnered with the first country ready for a new kind of maths education – Estonia.

From their press release:
This collaborative project will address school statistics, using computer-based techniques to write a completely new and innovative curriculum. Focusing on equipping students with the skills and abilities needed for a twenty-first-century economy, the Minister of Education and Research in Estonia, Jaak Aaviksoo, states that now is the time for computer-based maths: “We believe in the enthusiasm and potential of the Internet generation–they are ready for computer based mathematics. It will also give them a competitive advantage in the labour market.”
