The Worldwide Center of Mathematics was founded in the fall of 2008 by David B. Massey, an award-winning professor, with 26 years of college teaching experience, and a leading research mathematician in the area of singularities. The physical offices of the Center are located in Cambridge, Massachusettes, USA.
The purpose of the Center is to promote and disseminate mathematical knowledge at all levels ranging from college-preparation to research-level material. Currently, the Center offers the following:
College and Test Preparation Content: High-quality video lectures, with practice problems, on topics from geometry, algebra, and pre-Calculus. Prepare for the SAT's, GRE's, and other tests the old-fashioned way: by learning the material, not by learning test-taking tricks.
Undergraduate Course Supplements: High-quality videos, with practice problems, to aid students who are taking Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Multi-Variable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Probability, and Statistics. These lectures are given by award-winning teachers. Moreover, the lectures focus on a topic at a time, such as the Chain Rule, and are not simply recordings of classes. Therefore, regardless of the syllabus or textbook being used in a course at a student's school, these videos should provide valuable assistance. Finally, for most topics, there are two videos: one video demonstrating how to use the mathematics in a number of sample problemss, and a seperate video containing a discussion of the theory and proofs.
Custom Video Lectures and Reviews: With two weeks notice, we produce custom videos on all of the topics for which we offer course materials, and for many other topics.
Research-level Lectures: Live, in-person, research-level lectures by some of the world's premiere mathematicians; the public is invited to attend. High-quality videos of these lectures are available for download.
The Worldwide Journal of Singularities: An online-only, refereed journal of research articles in singularity theory.
The Worldwide Center of Mathematics is a for-profit organization, that has many aspects of a non-profit organization. In particular, we wish to provide our content and services at no cost or, at worst, a very low cost, to the individual user. In order to fund the Center, and to expand our activities in the future, we rely heavily on donations, investors, advertising revenue, and licensing deals with institutions and publishers. Our goal is to grow to the point where we can fund additional activities, such as: in-office tutorials and review sessions for undergraduates in the Great-Boston area, 24/7 video-chat tutoring, postdoctoral research positions (including office space), hosting of mathematics research conferences, and adding more Worldwide journals.
