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, Dürer, 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 high-quality "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 user-constructed
contributions.
