The Use of the Internet in Teaching Mathematics (Group B).
Butler, M. K.; Kay, A.; Booth, D. J.; Gordon, N. A.; Middleton, W.; Stone, J. A.
The main purpose of this paper is to provide teachers of mathematics in higher education with a guide to a selection of web-based resources which it is hoped will be useful in their teaching. Short reviews of a number of web sites are provided. It is not claimed that the collection of sites reviewed is exhaustive, or indeed that those reviewed are the best available. However, it is hoped that the present work will at least give an impression of the wealth of material that is available on the web and stimulate the reader to investigate further. It should be noted at the outset that many more sites were visited by members of the working group than have been included here; we have included those sites which we consider have something to offer the practicing lecturer.
