           MATHEMAGICA MATH TOOLS - THE JASON PROJECT

                      http://www.jason.org/

  Mathemagica, a new addition in the left sidebar of The Jason
  Project, is a library of interactive math tools or web-based
  applets, on core concepts within the strands of

    - number and operations
    - algebra
    - geometry

  The tools and accompanying "Explore" activities allow teachers
  to deepen mathematical knowledge and offer interactive models
  to use with students. Mathemagica is based on a vision of
  mathematics education in which teachers and students learn
  mathematics by solving problems, reasoning mathematically,
  making connections among concepts, and sharing their
  understanding with others.
