The focus of this project is to present key mathematical concepts in a visual and interactive way that textbooks cannot. FINITE MATH ON THE WEB teaches concepts for analyzing and solving problems through interactive exercises and Java™ applet-based visualization activities. Key concepts are presented in ten individual modules. The modules are designed to be self-contained, and may be assigned in any order to align with an instructor's syllabus. FINITE MATH ON THE WEB allows instructors to track time on task, and is coordinated with the course management features of iLrn so that instructors can easily create assignments and have students' work on those assignments automatically graded and entered in a gradebook. FINITE MATH ON THE WEB is accompanied by a student workbook that contains navigation instructions as well as additional explanations and exercises.
