We consider teaching the Continuous functions topic of Calculus using Mathematica and Webmathematica. We show that it makes possible not only to visualize the traditional approach of teaching but helps the students to reach the deeper understanding of continuity. It is achieved by the best motivation and explication of mathematical concepts.
The article reports about the students and teachers research group of National Research University Higher School of Economics entitled "Corplingui (Nizhny Novgorod-Moscow)"development.

The article describes the experience of designing project-based learning courses as part of the educational program "Applied Mathematics" in MIEM NRU HSE. The features of the organization of project-based learning for educational programs for mathematical sciences are considered. The results of the annual survey of employers, concluded that the need for various forms of project-based learning to achieve the learning outcomes claimed by employers. We suppose a sequence of the project-based workshops and seminars, as well as their approximate content. An important feature of the practice-oriented courses in the educational program "Applied Mathematics" is its interdisciplinary focus, including the projects carried out in a foreign language.
We create collaborative environment for collaborative creation, improvement and promoting bills within public and legislative projects. Enacting a new law means that a community devises out new rules which help it to become more efficient. Below are the principles on which legislative collaboration is based: Public construction of a document aiming at complex cloud issues has high educational value. The practice helps not only produce a quality document and build a community of people interested in its implementation, but promote the innovative document, maintain a new level of its understanding and perception by the society. 518 Collaborative document creation and voting has a priority over document deliberation. Our technology allows collaboration participants to create their own text versions, that could be voted for by other participants. The value of deliberation is less than the value of collaboration. Contemporary collaboration does not always need discussions. Discussion can take so much time and efforts that participants do not have resources to collaborate. The process of selecting text segments is based on the participants' voting. All the votes should be counted but the weight of each vote depends on the participant's impact and the estimation of this impact by the community. The more is the participant's impact and its estimation, the more is the participant's vote weight.
