Author:Gene Klotz, The Math Forum
Description: This 1997 hypertext document by Math Forum Director Gene Klotz outlines his views of the effect of the World Wide Web on mathematics and math education. Although the paper was the basis for a talk given to college mathematicians, it is written for a general audience. Gene's goals: a) to give novices a good overview of the WWW and math; b) to fill in gaps in the knowledge of more advanced users; and c) to examine where we appear to be going. Gene offers controversial conclusions and imagines wonderful and horrible possibilities, along with strategies for seizing opportunities and avoiding pitfalls. A form of this paper was presented at the spring 1997 meeting of the Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware section of the MAA.
