UF team seeks to double math learning through AI

The University of Florida is thrilled to announce its participation in the Learning Engineering Virtual Institute (LEVI). LEVI selected a cohort of seven teams committed to harnessing the potential of AI and machine learning to enhance middle school math education. We are excited to be one of the seven!

LEVI teams are already making remarkable strides toward accomplishing this ambitious goal. Together we are developing innovative interventions to tackle this problem, ranging from increasing student motivation and engagement to AI-powered on-demand tutoring.

UF’s Wanli Xing, associate professor of educational technology, will lead the project titled: AI-augmented Learning by Teaching to Enhance and Renovate Math Learning (ALTER-Math). The ALTER-Math team aims to double math learning progress for middle school students by developing AI-powered teachable agents using large language models (LLMs) through UF’s HiPerGator supercomputer. These agents will be integrated into the UF Lastinger Center for Learning’s Math Nation, a core curriculum used by over one million students annually.
