the current system to our new improved version. We hope you'll
appreciate the upgrade! We have an orientation video ready for

Math Images
http://mathforum.org/mathimages/
We featured the beta version last year, but now Math Images is
ready for its official launch. The Math Images Project aims to
introduce the public to mathematics through beautiful and
intriguing images found throughout the fields of math. The
images feature resources around the mathematics of the images,
including discussions, applets, and other related features.
Undergraduates writing to learn mathematics work on the site
with computer science students who have made interactive
programs and images to help explain the mathematics. They
invite questions, conversations, collaborations, and
contributions of images or other resources.
A list of all the tools on the site is here:

The Math Images Project is a wiki collaboration between
Swarthmore College, the Math Forum at Drexel University, and
the National Science Digital Library.

 suggestions for teaching and assessment
