Sanders http://www.k12.hi.us/~mathappl/index.html 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 explore and discover real-life applications ranging from 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. Curves: A study of curves, including circles, ellipses, parabolas, and many other mathematical curves. Solids: A study of solids, figures in three dimensions, including cubes, pyramids, cones, cylinders, and spheres. http://www.k12.hi.us/~mathappl/MAchapterList.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PROFESSOR FREEDMAN'S MATH HELP - Ellen Freedman http://www.mathpower.com/ Provides information about basic math and algebra and specifically addresses the needs of the community college adult learner.
