Open Culture describes (well.....) Citizen Maths, a project in which I am closely involved.
Many people still have a major fear of mathematics, having suffered through school and not really having been in the right frame of mind to grasp concepts that we’ve been told will come in handy in our future working lives.

Here is my seventh participant's report from the Stanford Introduction to Artificial Intelligence course. It is in three parts. A is the report proper. B picks up on a phone conversation with Sebastian Thrun. C lists further free CS courses that will be available from Stanford University in January 2012. #aiclass

[Cross posted, with some very minor changes, from LinkedIn.] Since late 2012 I have been closely involved (as "project director") in the creation of Citizen Maths, a free open online maths course at Level 2. I last wrote about it...

Course Showcase  - 
 
We've just made the Citizen Maths web site live, and we are taking registrations for the course, which we will release on or about 12 September. We are using this phase of Citizen Maths partly to judge the impact and potential of open online courses for adult learners of mathematics at intermediate level. So please register for the course; and when it launches do it, or scrutinise it, and critique it.

Here's an explanatory snippet from the website:

"Brush up your maths for free. Most of us know how to do straightforward maths. Then a task comes along and we can’t see how to use our simple maths to get to the answer we need. It feels just out of reach. Like working out how many bags of cement you need to order to lay a concrete base for a new garage… or gauging percentages of a budget. Citizen Maths is an online resource anyone can use — to discover how maths can be a powerful tool for solving those problems that come up at work and in your life. So next time, you won’t have to think twice."

We've also published on the Citizen Maths "Information Hub" some informal reflections from Google's June Course Builder workshop in Zurich: http://info.citizenmaths.com/june-2014-google-course-builder-workshop/.

Albert Einstein's email has been verified by Google? I guess they are right about those speedy neutrinos.
