John Dalziel's curator insight, September 11, 2013 10:02 AM

WisWeb is Freudenthal Institute's website for secondary math education (Learners of 12 to 18 years old).

 

The main focus of the site is applets; small computer programs that run over the internet.

 

Moreover, the site offers information on the DME, the Digital Math Environment.

 

The applets are small interactive learning tools which learners can use for several purposes, such as to...
- explore a problem situation,
- discover a representation or a concept,
- construct and explore 3D-objects, or
- practice a skill.
