`"An interactive text is a computer document from which
symbolic, numerical, and graphic tools can be invoked. The results of these
computations can be pasted into the document so that each learner has an
individual record of his or her explorations."`

This is a quote from '
Why Interactive Texts,' an outgrowth of the Interactive Mathematics Text Project (IMTP),
which "**has as its fundamental tenet the
belief that interactive texts provide an environment in which students can
fruitfully engage and explore mathematics.**"
