  Project Overview

We are proposing our Math students become aware of the opportunities for Math on the Internet. The goals of the project are broad since we wish to involve as much of the school as possible. It is the aim of the Math department at GHS to involve a variety of math courses.

  Goals

  1. Students will learn how to collect math data in a real world setting.
  2. Students will learn to publish their data using the World Wide Web (WWW) as their platform.
  3. Students will gain an appreciation for math and its place in the world.
  4. Students will research the history of mathematics and famous mathematicians with some reference to content covered in courses taken.

  Curriculum Connections

This project meets course objectives in various areas, including Mathematics, Communication Technology, Language Arts, World History and World Geography.

  Resource Connections

  1. Internet connection. Provided by Cable Atlantic and STEM~Net.
  2. Internet Server to place WWW pages on. This could be the school's server or STEM~Net.
  3. Computer Systems capable of running WWW software. This will be provided at the school level.
  4. Flatbed scanner and related software. This will be provided by Goose High School.
  5. Digital Camera. This will likely be provided by Labrador School Board.

  Evaluation

Students will illustrate their achievement of the stated objectives through:

  1. Submission of a completed project.
  2. Demonstration of the use of the Internet as a research tool.
