to Project WELCOME site...
Launched in May, 2000, with the support of an NSF grant, Project WELCOME
is a new part of the MAA SUMMA Program. WELCOME brings together elements
of three MAA program themes: academic technology, professional development,
and promoting involvement of historically under-represented groups.
project is funded to create a library collection of "interactive
mathematical explorations" (this web site) to support a suite of
undergraduate courses in mathematics. Each exploration consists of organized
sequences of simulations, "quantitative/qualitative laboratory"
experiments, lessons, and/or open-ended exercises
tied to the conceptual themes of the targeted course.
explorations are created in MathwrightWeb Author
and read either online within the browser (applet mode) using Mathwrightweb
Activex Control or offline using Mathwright32
order to view the interactive explorations, you must be running
Microsoft Windows 95/98/2000/ME/XP and using Microsoft Internet
Explorer 5.0 or later.
started by setting up your personal computer to play the interactive
explorations. The details are under the menu item "Start Here"
