San Diego, CA (November 9-12, 2017) Last week, Lyryx headed south for the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges Annual Conference. Mathematics educators from all over the US (and some Canadians!) attended to “Have a Prime Time” and learn more about developments in the instruction of mathematics.

For Lyryx, it was an opportunity to meet with a plethora of instructors seeking adaptable, accessible and affordable resources for their courses. There were a lot of (happily) surprised faces, when visitors to our booth learned of the open (free) textbooks Lyryx develops and posts on their website. Eyes and smiles grew even larger when we told them about the freely available in LaTeX files and that online formative assessment (homework) is uniquely affordable for students at $0-$39.95!

We are very grateful to the AMATYC for organizing such an expansive conference and we look forward to attending again next year.

Chicago, Illinois (July 26-29, 2017) Lyryx was pleased to be an exhibitor at this year’s Mathematical Association of America’s MathFest (https://www.maa.org/meetings/mathfest-2017). Joining thousands of mathematicians in pursuit of the MAA’s mission to “advance the understanding of mathematics and its impact on our world;” Lyryx exhibited their combination of free open texts and affordable high quality online assessment for Calculus and Linear Algebra, otherwise known as Lyryx with Open Texts (LOTs).

Lyryx President and Professor of Mathematics, Claude Laflamme, was invited to speak in the session regarding online assessment. His extensive experience with both developing and using online assessment was of great value to those seeking more information about resources available and their effectiveness.

A wonderful spirit of comradery, both among neighboring exhibitors and attendees, was a highlight of the event. In addition, LOTs for Calculus and Linear Algebra generated significant interest from many attendees and the Lyryx team is excited to follow up with interested parties the coming weeks!
