Möbius Foundations is a collection of Möbius building blocks that you can use as a starting point to build out the rest of your course or supplement content that you've already purchased or authored.
These supplementary STEM lessons, assignments and questions are an engaging showcase of Möbius' features, especially the interactive and exciting aspects of the platform like: Interactive Narratives, Math Apps, Maple-graded questions, 3-D plots, algorithmic questions, and more!
There's even student and instructor onboarding materials to get you and your students started with Möbius!
Since you’ll have access to this content inside of your Möbius site, this means that you can even take a look behind the scenes at how this content is authored!
You have unlimited access to preview, modify, share, and import these building blocks in any of your Möbius classes!
Summary of Möbius Foundations
Check out Add Möbius Foundations to your class for more details on how to access and use any of the Möbius Foundations content in your class.
The Möbius Content Templates are a DigitalEd collection of templated questions that can be asked using Möbius' flexible response areas, example interactives for various topics, and algorithmically-generated plotting examples.
Three types of Content Templates have been developed to get your class up and running faster:
- Question Templates: Template questions, each with a distinct grading routine.
- Interactives: Interactive Math Apps ready for use in Möbius.
- Plotting Examples: Template questions with commonly used types of plots.
Get To Know Möbius is a showcase of the different Möbius question types as well as some sample lessons and assignments from DigitalEd.
You’ll also have access to orientation activities that you can deliver to your students to help them get up and running faster in Möbius!
TIP: Feel free to use the Student Orientation activities from Get To Know Möbius in your own class to help your students get acquainted with Möbius!
