PascGalois Mathematics for Elementary Education Classroom Resources

Cynthia Woodburn (Pittsburgh State Univ.) and Nancy Zumoff (Kennesaw State Univ.)

The PascGalois project at consists of applets, stand-alone Java programs, and supporting material for classroom teaching of Abtract Algebra and Number Theory as they occur in undergraduate mathematics courses, undergraduate research projects, and mathematics courses for future teachers.  A brief description of the project and representative material to be found on the PascGalois site can be read here: Introduction to the PascGalois JE Applets . 

The table of contents below describes the Classroom Resources available on the site for a course in Mathematics for Elementary Education. A direct link to an "active version" of this table of contents (i.e., with links to the relevant html or pdf file) is given at the bottom of this page.
