|Videotape-and-workbook modules that explore basic topics in high school mathematics in ways that cannot be done at the chalkboard or in a textbook. The tapes use live action, music, special effects, and imaginative computer animation, and are distributed on a nonprofit basis. Each module consists of a videotape and a workbook, and explores a basic topic in mathematics that can be easily integrated into existing high school or community college curricula. The modules encourage interaction between students and teachers, and include: The Theorem of Pythagoras; The Story of Pi; Similarity; Polynomials; Sines and Cosines (Periodic functions, Trigonometry, Addition formulas); The Tunnel of Samos; and a Teachers Workshop. A 30-minute Early History of Mathematics videotape also traces some of the landmarks in mathematics.|
