The Explorer

The Explorer is a network data base system for contributing, organizing and delivering educational resources. These resources (instructional software, lab activities, lesson plans ...) are currently for K-12 mathematics and science education but we plan to expand content disciplines and target audiences. The Explorer is being developed jointly by the Great Lakes Collaborative and the University of Kansas UNITE group to involve educators and students in creating and using multimedia resources for active learning and "on time" delivery. The U.S. Department of Education OERI office provided funding to support the Explorer research and development efforts.

ERIC/CSMEE

This World Wide Web Server is operated by the staff of the ERIC/CSMEE. We call ourselves CSMEE for short (pronounced "kizz-me"). ERIC/CSMEE is located on the campus of The Ohio State University and is one of the original ERIC Clearinghouses founded in 1966. On this WWW server, we intend to provide materials of interest to the science, mathematics, and environmental education communities. We hope that you will find the information here useful.

Image Processing in Science

Image processing is the manipulation and analysis of scientific information represented as images. Using computer technology developed for space exploration and biomedicine, digital image processing is now widely used in science and industry. Sophisticated software and images are now available for the computers typically found in schools.

Future Graph

Using f(g) Scholar, students can define constants, variables and functions, graph equations build live tables of their functions, perform virtually any data analysis, statistical analysis, and curve fit. Students can even write complete lab reports or mathematical analyses that incorporate live calculations, graphs, pictures, tables,
equations, and animations. Once students have graphed their functions or data they zoom into and out of the graph, pan, and trace through the graph and their functions.
