Skills Text Box A Tool to Access Resources by Mathematical Concepts


Searching for mathematical concepts being indicated in a document is not easy with the existing technologies because the current information retrieval technology has been designed for words and mathematical concepts are often made of more than single words. Skills-text-box is an approach to this retrieval problem: it lets users use the classical search by words paradigm to search for the concept then identify it by choosing through a finite list. Skills-text-box is the device used to support the search engine of at contribution and search time.
In this paper, we sketch the current technical development Skills-text-box, and present its advantages and limits as have been experimented by multiple mathematics teachers in Europe.
