Abstract

Classroom trials at Kimpton Middle School demonstrated advantages of the WME (Web-based Mathematics Education) system and obtained positive feedback as well as suggestions from teachers and students. Based on the prototype site for Kimpton, an interdisciplinary team is developing a model WME site making it directly deployable in different schools. Components within WME sites are interoperable and easily customizable by teachers. Reported are the model site design, organization, architecture and implementation. Features that support portability, component interoperability and easy user customization are emphasized. These features are important in making WME practical, efficient, and effective for mathematics education.
