The talk presents some ideas to generate exercises for Maths and Stats courses using shiny apps. The R software environment in the background is quite useful here: It allows to randomly choose parameters and data in such exercises and provides calculation results and graphical illustrations. In addition, the MathJax capability of shiny allows to use formulas as in classical textbooks.
Since shiny apps generate web documents, they can be easily linked into websites or online platforms (e.g. into Moodle courses). Self-written shiny apps allow for an implementation that precisely fits the needs of a specific mathematics or statistics course.
The Maths and Stats apps presented here are intended as a complementary offer, i.e. in addition to usual classroom exercises. The students should use them independently to train and self-test their mathematics or statistics skills.
