During the summer of 1995, Bob worked on a series of HTML documents
for SciMath MN Project. These documents were intended to instruct
secondary educators on using HTML in the classroom and write HTML
documents of their own. From the summer of 1994 until the spring of
1995, Bob was employed at the Geometry Center as a mathematics writer
for a set of NSF funded computer news groups called the Geometry
Forum. Bob interviewed Center staff and visitors about their research
and educational ideas, posting the resulting work on the Geometry
Forum.
