This issue of the newsletter describes the five Soloworks Laboratories which are being developed in conjunction with Project Solo. These are: 1) The Computer Laboratory, focusing on those aspects of mathematics which are well described by algorithms and which encourage student access to a local computer and terminals; 2) the Dynamics Laboratory, which deals with mathematical processes that take place in time; 3) the Logical Design Laboratory, involving digital and analog circuit modules; 4) the Synthesis Laboratory, which is concerned with that type of mathematical analysis which makes use of the principle of superimposition, of producing complex effects by adding together simple ones; and 5) the Modelling/Simulation Laboratory, which uses mathematics as a tool for the creation of new models of reality.
