I-MATH by Cathleen V. Sanders


Cathi Sanders has recently completed a new set of web pages, adding to the collection hosted on the Math Forum site.

I-MATH is a set of web pages created to assist mathematics teachers and students in learning and enjoying mathematics.

Hands-on investigations in mathematics, and exploration of the vast resources of the Internet can create opportunities for students to collaborate, and to communicate their discoveries; to become sources of mathematical information as well as recipients. The "I" in I-MATH stands for Imagination, Investigation, Interaction and Illumination, all of which are essential aspects of teaching and learning.
