  • What is Mathematical Programming?

    Mathematical programming unifies math and coding. It’s based on scientifically grounded physics simulations, which means computing and predicting scenarios with a computer. With DigiMat you’ll learn to create your own virtual worlds.

    Who is DigiMat for?

    DigiMat is for everyone, no matter age or level. Kids, parents, teachers and university students and professionals. Anyone can learn to use the simple algorithms of DigiMat.

    Why learn Mathematical Programming?

    Mathematical Programming is crucial for industry and our digital society. With mathematical programming you can do much more powerful, interesting and useful things than with regular coding.

    What didactic method does DigiMat use?

    DigiMat focuses on motivation, creativity and learning by doing. Motivation is key to store information in the long term memory. By focusing on the amazing things you can achieve you'll find motivation to learn more and reach higher. With mathematical programming you get a better understanding of the algorithms rather than learning special cases by heart, which is what traditional math education often focus on. You learn that the basics of math and coding are the same, and by that you understand the basic principles of both mathematics and programming.


    Which are the DigiMat learning goals?

    1. Number representation [Basic] in first binary form making representation and arithmetic algorithms easy to understand.
    2. Arithmetic algorithms [Basic] constructed by repetition of the basic operation of +1 according the basic prototype of all computer programs of DigiMat in the form n = n + 1
    3. Time-stepping [Basic-Pro] automatically solving all (ordinary) mathematical models in the form x = x + v*dt
    4. Text programing [Basic-Pro] enabling the students to understand, modify and extend the algorithms and computer realizations themselves.







  • Enter Ada's World! Our pedagogical app is inspired by Ada Lovelace (1815-1852), mathematician and one of the first programmers in history. Here you learn the binary addition algorithm and time-stepping for simulation, by organizing a party. You'll also meet and learn about Ada’s friends, all based on leading personas through the history of math and programming.










  • DigiMat Mid is for you who are a little more experienced and feel comfortable with the algorithms (arithmetic and basic time stepping) and text programming in DigiMat Basic.

    In DigiMat Mid you navigate a world with activities, and build your own virtual worlds around them, for example focusing on:

    1. Games
    2. Dance - motion, music
    3. Design - vehicles, buildings, etc.
    4. Medicine
    5. Society

  • Solving the reproducibility crisis in the digital era

    Breakthrough predictive reproducible industrial simulation

    Digital Math - reproducible research

    We present the Digital Math framework as the foundation for modern science based on constructive digital mathematical computation. The computed result (coefficient vector, FEM function, plot, etc.) is a mathematical theorem, and the mathematical Open Source code, here in the FEniCS framework, and computation is the mathematical proof. We can also derive additional constructive proofs from the FEniCS and FEM formulation, such as stability.

    Based on the Digital Math framework and the FEniCS realization, we present our Direct FEM Simulation (DFS) methodology together with predictions of the most advanced benchmarks available, unlocking the grand challenge of turbulence and aerodynamics.

    Digital Math represents digitalization of mathematics, society, industry and society in the form of automated and easily understandable computation of mathematical models in the Open Source FEniCS framework with world-leading performance and recognized at the highest level of science and industry together with an effective pedagogical concept with combined abstract theory and mathematical interactive programming in a cloud-HPC web-interface.

    Learning outcomes:

    After this course the student should be able to:

    1. Describe and demonstrate the technology needed for reproducible research in the Digital Math setting.

    2. Create and publish their own reproducible research in the Digital Math setting.

  • The DigiMat Teacher Course Level 01

    Learning goals

    The DigiMat Teacher Course contains the following fundamental learning goals, which are the basis for all of Digital Math:

    1. Number representation [Basic] in first binary form making representation and arithmetic algorithms easy to understand.
    2. Arithmetic algorithms [Basic] constructed by repetition of the basic operation of +1 according the basic prototype of all computer programs of DigiMat in the form n = n + 1
    3. Time-stepping [Basic-Pro] automatically solving all (ordinary) mathematical models in the form x = x + v*dt
    4. Text programming [Basic-Pro] enabling the students to understand, modify and extend the algorithms and computer realizatons themselves.
    Course Plan
    1. Algorithms: binary addition and time stepping.
    2. Accessible text programming. Concrete activities: time-stepping vibration in a guitar string, binary addition in the "falling stair case simulation".
    3. Understanding and ability to yourself explain and demonstrate how programming of algoriths covers all of math - Digital Math.

      Concrete example: time stepping implies solution of mathematical models (differential equations) such as harmonic oscillator, which can be interpreted as trigonometry.

    4. Understanding and ability to yourself explain and demonstrate how time stepping covers all mathematical models (differential equations).

      Concrete example: time stepping solves/simulates: harmonic oscillator, gravitation/planet system, mass-spring system (elastic bodies), wave propagation, fluid mechanics, etc.

    5. Orientation of a large body of activities and material in DigiMat that build on 1-4 which you can adapt, build on yourself, etc. from your own interest and need to cover the entire course plan from pre-school to top academic level.

      A large number of add-on courses can be made on this initial Teacher Course based on the material in 5.

    Learning Activities
    1. Watch the trailer video at the DigiMat main page!
    2. Watch the introduction video to the right!
    3. In Ada's World: Carry out the binary addition algorithm in the "falling stair case simulation".
    4. In Ada's World: Carry out the timestepping algorithm in the "launching pinecone simulation".
    5. In Ada's World: Carry out the text programming (creating your own dance) in the "dance simulation".
    6. Text programming with time stepping. (Ada's World level 2 - DigiMat Pixel)

      Watch the tutorial videos for "Text programming with time stepping" to the right. Now try yourself in Ada's World level 2 - DigiMat Pixel!

      1. Draw two "digital objects", one will be red and one will be green.
      2. In the "mathematical programming" box to the right, change the gravity force g to 0 ("g = 0"), and set the force on the green "digital object" to something you like, for example "fgreenx = 0.1". Play around with "fgreenx" and "fgreeny"! Try to set the values so the green object hits the red object!
    7. Time-stepping vibration in a guitar string. (Ada's World level 2)

      Play with the Digital Math code for the time-stepping. Choose different frequency/pitch values in the list, add and remove values, what happens?

      Advanced: modify the "damping" to the guitar string by changing the term " - y*k" to the "y = y +"... line. What happens to the sound when you increase and decrease the damping?

    Seminar 01.01 (flipped-classroom)

    Tuesday October 13 16:00 CET Online together with the DigiMat team. Email jjan@kth.se if you want to participate!

    For Seminar 01.01 we strongly encourage you to spend 20-30 minutes on Learning Activities 1-5. We will then have a high-level discussion in the Serminar, where you have the opportunity to learn from your peers by sharing your experiences, and to interact with the DigiMat team.

    The DigiMat Teacher Course Level 02

    Learning goals

    The DigiMat Teacher Course contains the following fundamental learning goals, which are the basis for all of Digital Math:

    1. Number representation [Basic] in first binary form making representation and arithmetic algorithms easy to understand.
    2. Arithmetic algorithms [Basic] constructed by repetition of the basic operation of +1 according the basic prototype of all computer programs of DigiMat in the form n = n + 1

    4. Text programing [Basic-Pro] enabling the students to understand, modify and extend the algorithms and computer realizatons themselves.
    Course Plan

    This is the course plan for DigiMat School which with good margin satisfies the new teaching plan 2018 in Sweden (with similar situations elsewhere globally) with programming as part of the math subject. The course plan has the same form for Middle School (Grundskola) and High School (Gymnasium), with differing breadth and depth.

    Programming gives completely new possibilities to give the math subject meaning for all students since the student herself builds the math in interaction with the computing power of the computer in what can be described as building and playing of virtual interactive worlds and games.

    Goal: To Describe-Simulate-Explore-Understand-Interact the Virtual World in the form of games and fantasy.

    Language: Formal math notation + programming language such as JavaScript.

    Content: Fantasy, Brain, Eyes, Fingers, Computer/Mobile device.

    1. Text programming in languages such as JavaScript, Python. Fundamental algorithms and data structures: variable, list, array, function, repetition, conditional, logic.
    2. Construction of natural numbers through iteration x = x + 1 med start x = 0
    3. Computing with natural numbers: addition, subtraction, multiplication.
    4. Text programming of computational algorithms in 2. Digital number representation starting with binary and then several bases.
    5. Digital construction of rational numbers as solutions to the equation px = q with p and q natural numbers. Text programming of computational algorithms for rational numbers: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
    6. Number representation of spatial position x: coordinate system, computer screen/pixels
    7. Motion: change of position: x = x + v*dt (or dx = v*dt) with v velocity and dt time steo.
    8. Change of motion: v = v + a*dt (or dv = a*dt) with a acceleration. Newton's second law: a = f/m where f is force and m mass.
    9. Digital construction of elementary functions (polynomials, sin, cos, exp, log, etc.) through text programming of time stepping of a = f/m, v = v + a*dt, x = x + v*dt with simple f.
    10. Properties of elementary functions through construction. Generalization to general f, for example by Newton's law of gravity.
    11. Digital representation of and operation on geometric objects in 2D and 3D.
    12. Digital representation of and operation on images and sounds, or other data.
    13. Calculus as solution of dx = f(x)*dt
    14. Linear algebra as generalization of 11.
    15. Construction/text programming of interactive virtual worlds/games which build on 1-14 with for example the following components:
      1. Dynamics of many bodies interacting by forces: friction, springs, gravity.
      2. Interaction via buttons, knobs, touch or accelerometer/gyroscope.
      3. Examples as Pong, Angry Birds, Flight Simulator, Pinball, Racing, Shooting, Pettson's Inventions, BikeRace, GeometryDash, Pool, Tennis, FlyBird, with and without use of physics engine.
