Mathematics explain most phenomena around the world. They are very useful to understand our everyday life, but many of us fear them.

Students should be able to apply maths to their academic development, whatever discipline they choose.

We suggest a way to participate and improve Wikipedia by applying math functions in their academic field. In teams they could find or get assigned a mathematical function seen in the course program, and find an application of it in their study field. For example, in engineering derivatives are applied often in the design of spillways

You have identified a way to get students involved in using and contributing to Wikepedia. The next step would be to identify the gaps in Wikipedia and who would generate a list of pages that students would work on.
