Below are several World Wide Web addresses that may be of interest.
The W.W.W. can be accessed through many university mainframes. Presently,
Prodigy also allows one to access the Web. America On Line will have a
Web browser available soon. The Web as is any type of technology used in
education is as only as good as it is related to the goals and
objectives of the curriculum. Through using the internet resources such as
the W.W.W. students will be able to obtain resources and learn to communicate
with others. Such resources and communication will lead to students becoming
more motivated to disseminate their knowledge to others and to learn what
other students are learning. Likewise, by students obtaining information
and learning how scientists are using mathematics, the relevancy to learning
math will be enhanced. I hope the below addresses and resources are of
value to you.

One of the easiest ways to get additional information on a given topic is
to use a web searching utility at the following address:

The following books may be of interest to educators on obtaining
resources and learning about the internet.

Way of the Ferret by Judi Harris Through ISTE Phone 1-800-336-5191
Education on the Internet by Jill H. Ellsworth SAMS Publishing
Using The Internet, Second Edition, Que Publishing
The Internet Yellow Pages, Osborne Publishing
Free Stuff from the Internet, by Patrick Vincent, Coriolis Group Books
Classroom Connect Newsletter, Free Trial Issue, Phone 1-800-638-1639
Educator's Internet Companion 1-800-638-1639

The above list is just a sample of the books available,
There are books available on just using the W.W.W.. I found navigating
through the W.W.W. is much easier than using UNIX commands to obtain
information on the internet.

Many of the above books may be available at your local library.
Likewise, many internet guides may be downloaded free at gopher sites.

Good luck in navigating through the internet. I hope the above
information will be beneficial.
