About Loci Resources


The Loci Resources encompasses and extends the MathDL Digital Classroom Resources (DCR) library as an exemplary collection of free online teaching and learning materials.  All materials have been classroom tested and peer reviewed.  This part of the Loci collection provides instructors with a set of tools ready for implementation in an existing curriculum as well as a forum for discussion of the issues surrounding the materials and their uses. The collection will also provide a snapshot of trends and thoughts on issues relevant to the use of technology in mathematics teaching and learning.

Materials in Loci Resources may involve, but are not limited to, one or more of the following technologies:

  • interactive web pages using Java or Flash applets, Javascript, or server-side applications;
  • web pages enhanced with animation or streaming video;
  • downloadable programs that run independently of the web or web browser; or
  • modules developed for commercial software like Excel, Maple, Mathematica, MatLab, or others.

Loci welcomes contributors, referees, and readers from all countries. Both mathematics and education are international concerns and endeavors. Neither the Mathematical Association of America nor the National Science Foundation limits Loci in any way to national interests.
