  Steve Weimar has been named director of the Math 
  Forum @ Drexel. Steve is looking to enhance the interactive 
  services for which the Math Forum is widely known, and help 
  the Math Forum play a leading role in the evolution of 
  online education.

  Steve brings to Drexel a history with the Math Forum, starting
  in 1994 with the Geometry Forum and later as a principal
  investigator and project director for the Math Forum. Most 
  recently, he served as Vice President of the Learning
