Welcome to the Wild World of Knots!
The goal of the department of knot theory is to provide a place to collaborate in creating new learning materials for this new and burgeoning area of mathematics with applications as diverse as biochemistry and string theory. Formally, knot theory is the study of isotopies of closed curves in space. As with all mathematical fields of interest, however, it has grown beyond that strict definition. If you know knots, feel free to write up some lessons or materials!
Department news 
- Wednesday, August 23, 2006 - Department founded!
Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple departments. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the lesson (lessons are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing!
Offsite Learning Materials 
Recommended Reading Material 
If you want to learn knot theory, you have to do some knot theory! While this site provides a supportive community of peers and teachers, you also need a well-organized and well-written text that you can study anywhere to learn from those actively participating in the field.

Active participants 
The histories of Wikiversity pages indicate who the active participants are. If you are an active participant in this department, you can list your name here (this can help small departments grow and the participants communicate better; for large departments a list of active participants is not needed).
