Gunnar would like to change the way we think about mathematics. Mathematics education is as fundamental to science and technology as learning to hold a pencil is for drawing. It may not be easy but the Tutor-web team wants to develop the right tools to make mathematics accessible to everyone. These free software tools for tablet computers are designed to help students, even in some of the most remote places in Africa where one can not count on Internet connections or stable electricity.

Gunnar Stefánsson is a professor of statistics in the Mathematics Department of the University of Iceland. He worked at the Marine Research Institute for over a decade, providing advice on the utilisation of marine resources, before turning to teaching and research on education at the University of Iceland.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
