Web Homework

  1. 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.)

  2. 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.

  3. Create a home page which includes the following:

    If you do not have a web document editor like Netscape Gold or PageMill, you might find the Math Forum's tutorial helpful.
