# Leveraging Web Components for Authoring Interactive Mathematics

#### Abstract

Digital, interactive content can support active learning and provide both motivation and an automated feedback to students. Unfortunately authoring interactive content remains a difficult task for teachers. There are few interoperable standards and e-learning platforms often restrict what is technically possible. Even if some teachers create amazing interactive content it is challenging to publish and share this content with colleagues. This paper proposes a way to leverage \textit{Web Components}, a rather new technology supported by modern browsers, to allow teachers to quickly author interactive exercises involving mathematical expressions and visualizations. As \textit{Web Components} are standardized they can be shared and embedded in any website. The proposed \textit{Web Components} for mathematics allow for: 1. A convenient visual input method for expressions and formulas, 2. A sophisticated validation system for these expressions in order to give immediate feedback to students on their solutions.
