Constructing Geometry on the Internet

A Materials Development Institute for Leading High School Geometry Teachers

This is to announce an invitational program for teachers of geometry who
are experienced in telecomunications and the use of computers in the
classroom. The small and select group of participants will be introduced
to the latest tools and projects on the Internet and become involved in
developing resources which enhance its usefulness and accessibility for
schools and math classrooms. The conference will be held July 8-15, 1995,
at Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA.

This is the third summer of the highly regarded conferences hosted by The
Geometry Forum, an electronic mathematics community which enables teachers
(and students) to exchange ideas, conduct student projects, find and
create online resources, and access geometers and math educators
internationally. These introductory programs have been very successful in
both introducing the Internet to math educators and in modeling and
exploring the pedagogy involved in the use of the Internet in
education--so successful that we are unable to meet the demand for them.
While we are conducting a few such introductory programs for others this
summer, our own institute will concentrate on cutting edge exploration of
advanced tools and uses, hopefully paving the way for new users to come.

The targeted goal for the week is to create materials and projects which
take advantage of the World Wide Web and other multi-media, hypertextual
technologies that support user-constructed environments and integrate the
many resources of the Internet in order to extend current curricula,
classroom projects, and professional development opportunities.

A limited number of travel stipends will be available. Room, board, and
other conference costs will be covered by the Forum. Participating
teachers will receive needed software and ongoing support for their
related Internet activities.

The Geometry Forum is funded by the National Science Foundation.

Individuals interested in participating in the conference should submit an
application as soon as possible. An electronic copy of the application and
more information about the Geometry Forum can be found at More information can be obtained from the
Geometry Forum at 800-756-7823 or The size of
the conference will be limited to 8-12 participants.
