Moreover, an interactive environment created in a MathView worksheet can be easily embedded in an HTML document and placed on the web. And even though MathView is relatively inexpensive, viewing a web page with an embedded MathView worksheet does not even require the MathView system! Instead, a plugin that can be obtained for free from Waterloo Maple is all that is needed (in addition to a web browser, of course).
This combination of features makes it not only simple, but also highly cost-
effective, to create and deliver interactive web-based mathematics. This paper
will show examples of interactive web pages designed to lead students to
discover some of the standard theorems of calculus, and will demonstrate the
creation of an interactive web page--using tools no more sophisticated than
Netscape and MathView.
