Interactive Mathematics Text Workshops: Summer 1992

The MAA's Interactive Mathematics Text Project (IMTP) has as its
goal the improvement of student learning of mathematics through
the use of interactive texts. An interactive mathematics text is
a computer based text document from which numeric, symbolic, and
graphical commands can be executed with the result appearing in
the document. The text may be a single lesson or it may be an
entire course.

The IMTP has selected six regional sites at which it will run
week-long workshops during the summers of 1992 and 1993. At
these workshops participants will be given an overview of
interactive texts and their use in instruction, will spend time
using a text, receive instructions on how to author a text and
will work closely with the workshop staff and each other on the
creation of a short text on a topic of their choice.

Texts will be developed to run under Microsoft Windows on an IBM
PS/2 using Mathcad for Windows, Maple for Windows or Mathematica
for Windows. Up to 12 workshop participants will be chosen, each
summer, to receive the loan of an IBM PS/2 to enable them to
continue development of their text.

The workshops are supported by a grant to the MAA from IBM.
They begin on Monday morning and run six days. The charge to
participants includes room and board (7 nights, single occupancy)
and a copy of the authoring software. This varies depending upon
the site and the software. (Individuals who already have access
to the authoring software will not be required to purchase an
additional copy.)

Interested individuals should send an application to the manager
at the selected site with a deposit of $150. An application form
is attached.
