Mathematics and the WWW (14 April 1997)
Math Forum Director Gene Klotz has assembled a hypertext document outlining his views of the effect of the World Wide Web on mathematics and math education. Although this paper will be the basis for a talk to be 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 is to be presented at the spring meeting of the Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware section of the MAA.
