|An interactive problem of the week service offered from 1999 until 2001. ESCOT is an NSF-funded research grant that developed interactive Java applets to help middle school learners understand typically difficult math concepts, for example, fractions or probability. These applets can also be used for exploration outside of the Problem of the Week environment. ESCOT teacher support pages are also available, containing: NCTM standards links; possible pre- and post-activities; lessons; Ask Dr. Math archive links; vocabulary; and other resources on the Web.|
