Author:Dennis, David; Addington, Susan
Description: "Dedicated to the reform of mathematics education and curriculum through a modern reinvention of the medieval quadrivium" — the upper four liberal arts of geometry, astronomy, arithmetic, and music. The secondary curriculum "Mathematical Intentions" freely offers 50 half-hour lectures in mp3 format, many supporting documents in PDF format, and interactive GeoGebra applets in dynamic geometry and spreadsheets. The textbook "Measuring the World" integrates technology as a tool for problem solving, and "opens the way for a future mathematics curriculum that takes full advantage of modern mathematical technology, in which arithmetic algorithms are studied not only for skills, but also to build understanding about how numbers work."
