- Through the links in Part 2 of the
Introduction to the Web, find at least three Web pages on three
different Web sites which contain interesting mathematics, as well as
using the Web as an effective teaching tool. (Choosing different Web
sites means, for example, that only one of your three choices could be
at the Geometry Center.) Give the locations (URLs; This should look
something like "http://www.geom.umn.edu/graphics/".) For these Web
pages, write a review; talk specifically about the mathematics and how
the web page addressed it. How did the medium of hypertext help to
teach the mathematics? (Do not answer "it did not help." If you do not
think that the medium helped, then find another Web page.)
- This question gets you started thinking about your final
project: Describe your reactions to the Web as a mathematics teaching
tool. When is the medium especially useful? Can you think of any
mathematical ideas which one might convey well using the Web? When is
it not useful? Do you notice any pitfalls? Support your statements
with examples.
- With the help of
the
tutorial, write your home page and save it in your own apple
directory. The more you learn, the easier it will be for you to turn
in homework in html in future weeks. At the very least, your home page
should include the following:
- A title
- A header
- At least two paragraphs
- A picture (that you have scanned)
- A link to another document
- Your name and email address.
