Math Forum Advanced Summer Institute:

Developing Internet Mathematics Projects and Resources

During the second week in July, the Math Forum hosted its third Advanced Summer Institute for mathematics educators who are developing high-quality uses of the Internet. We brought together a group of creative, Web-savvy teachers in order to introduce them to each other, to new tools, to interesting mathematics, to Forum staff from whom they might receive continuing support, and to the possibility of receiving modest financial support during the school year through the Forum Teacher Associate program. Our goal is to enhance projects and resources they are already developing, and to build a community that will help others do the same.

You are invited to explore the fruits of our joint efforts. To see Web pages created by Sum98 participants, follow the links from our Participant Projects page. For an idea of the organization and flow of the week -- from our introductory game, Human Graph Theory, to participant activities and Forum staff presentations on Formatting Math for the Web, Forum Forms, Java GSP, Javascript, Dynamic HTML, Tools for displaying math on the Web, and Building Online Community -- see the Sum98 Agenda and read our Daily Summaries.

You can also read participants' comments on software favorites they used as they designed their innovative Web resources. The software they chose was often key to the success of their projects.

Our workshop pages offer the agendas of previous summer institutes with links to work done by participants.
