An interactive electronic mathematics course offered via the
Internet to students throughout the Hawaiian islands. Cathi
Sanders, a teacher at Punahou School in Honolulu, teaches
this course through ESchool, a pilot project of the Hawaii
Department of Education funded by a U.S. Challenge Grant.

The course uses computer technology and the Internet to

art and astronomy to movie-making and seismology.
 
Chapters include

  Lines: A study of lines and shapes formed from lines,
    such as polygons, parallels, and angles.

  Numbers: A study of numbers and other mathematical
    symbols.
