Jul 1, 1996 6:31 AM


Announcing a new Math Forum Web Unit by Suzanne Alejandre:
Magic Squares http://forum.swarthmore.edu/alejandre/magic.square.html
It's designed primarily for middle school and older elementary school students, and includes classroom activities for four different squares: Lo Shu, Sator, DÃÂÃÂ¼rer, and Franklin, three of them demonstrating increasing complexity using numbers, and one made up of letters, with number and symmetry questions and links and suggestions for history / geography / writing activities for teachers interested in interdisciplinary work.
This is one of about 15 highquality "Web Units" that can be found at:
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/web.units.html
Each unit takes advantage of the unique educational opportunity that the World Wide Web presents: combining of hypertext, interactivity, multimedia communication at a distance, and userconstructed contributions.
