Reviews

"The amount of math-related materials on the Internet is growing exponentially. Yet it is hard to find a book that explains how the Internet can be used effectively to enhance student mathematical learning and critical thinking skills. Glazer's book is an attempt in this direction. Parts 1 and 2 of his work define major elements of critical thinking and discuss how Web resources can be used to stimulate student critical thinking in mathematics. Part 3 provides a total of 153 primary source sites covering algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, and calculus. Each site is presented in the same format with site address, suggested mathematical level, site summary, topics, discussion questions and activities, and related Internet sites. The consistency in the format makes the book easy to follow. This reviewer was impressed that many of these sites are still located at the same URL address provided in Glazer's book. Most of the sites whose URLs have changed are updated at http: //www.greenwood.com/glazer.htm. This book can be a highly valuable resource for mathematics teachers to enhance student learning as long as it is updated regularly. Recommended for high school mathematics teachers and students, as well as high school and university libraries."-CHOICE
