Software for teaching and learning mathematical proofs
Where most mathematical proof software concentrates on formal logic (or some other specialty area of mathematics), Lurch aims to be truly general-purpose, with an attracitve user interface.

Additional Project Details:
Your word processor has spelling and grammar checkers. Your math word processor should check your math. (Not just arithmetic, but algebra, calculus, and proofs as well.)
That is what Lurch does; it is a simple math word processor with a general-purpose math checker built in. The project began in June 2008 and version 0.75 has recently been released. You can download it free for Windows, Mac, or Linux.
Lurch 0.8 Released on April 3, 2014! (Download) (Troubles? See our FAQ!)
Lurch now supports full mathematical typesetting of math expressions in either TeX or calculator notation. This is a major release, following version 0.7992. See release notes here.
- Lurch should be as indistinguishable from the ordinary activities of mathematics as possible, except for the additional services it provides. That is, it should only add to your math experience, not change your math experience.
Lurch, look no further than the free, online introductory logic textbook forallX, now updated to include Lurch lessons throughout.
|TeX-enabled word processor||only unicode math symbols for now, more math rendering coming|
|built on OpenMath for unambiguous semantics||done and thoroughly tested|
|several math topics built in||several now, more coming|
|users can add new math topics|
For several years, this author (Nathan Carter) has used the textbook forallX by P.D. Magnus in his introduction to logic course for honors students at Bentley University
Since Lurch became mature enough to handle the course content, I wanted a book that integrated LurchforallX in Lurchis
- Know math but not Lurch? Want to learn without figuring it all out on your own? Flip through the text, skip the math you already know, and just focus on the software lessons. They begin at the very beginning (installing Lurch and typing text) and end at the advanced (declaring variables and using them in proofs with quantifiers).
