CHALLENGE

How can topology, the complex mathematical study of properties that are preserved through deformations, be made accessible within undergraduate education?

SOLUTION

By utilising intuitive language
and visuals to explain a complex concept—homeomorphism— through an interactive experience.

UNIQUE SOLUTION

Inspired by the Moore Method of teaching, I felt an interactive approach would better allow students to learn at their own pace and assess their own understanding.

“I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.”

— Confucius

WHY TOPOLOGY?

The subject of Topology offers many opportunities for illustrations and visualisations, however these are usually wrapped in screeds of proofs and theory work.

A resource discussing topology at a beginner level, without any prerequisites, would be a unique and valuable addition to a high school curriculum.
