Effective Learning & Teaching in Mathematics & Its Applications

By Peter Kahn; Joseph Kyle | Go to book overview

Appendix:

a guide to mathematics resources on the Internet

This is a guide to some of the ways in which the Worldwide Web can be used as a resource for teachers and learners of mathematics. Browsing the Internet can be very time-consuming, so this is just one person's selection of tutorials, interactive materials and mathematical tools. The selection given here, along with the accompanying notes, was collated by Pam Bishop, Assistant Director of the LTSN Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research (OR) Network (see http://ltsn.mathstore.ac.uk/workshops/induction2001/resources.htm#uk for the original version).

Recently the Mathematics, Statistics and OR Network has added a section to its Web site, 'Accessing Maths and Stats By Other Means' (http://ltsn.mathstore.ac.uk/access/accessmsor.htm), which includes tools for students with disability. Help with finding mathematical sites on the Internet is available via the online tutorial 'The Internet Mathematician' (http://www.eevl.ac.uk/vts/maths/index.htm).

Some of these sites use special browsers or plug-ins which have to be installed as part of Netscape or Internet Explorer. If you want to take advantage of such facilities on machines in your own institution, you (or a network manager) may have to download and install the correct version for your machine or network.

Many other sites can be searched for within the Network's resource database at http://www.ltsn.gla.ac.uk/resources or the 'Internet Guide to Mathematics' at http://www.eevl.ac.uk/mathematics.

Given the dynamic nature of the Web, URLs and site content are liable to change but the information here was correct at the time of publication.
