In what follows, the principal functionalities of Semiomix are first
described (see also O’Halloran et al., 2012) and then illustrated via screenshots from Professor W. Gilbert Strang’s first lecture in Linear Algebra from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Open Courseware (OCW).1 Following this, Professor Strang’s use of language and gesture are interpreted in relation to the different stages of the mathematics lecture. Finally, the achievements and limitations of the existing version of Semiomix are described with view to future research.
