This work was funded in part by the Princeton MathWeb for Teachers (PMWT), a project of the Math Forum which was hosted by the Princeton Computer Science department and funded by the National Science Foundation. The PMWT aimed to exploit possibilities for collaboration between several Princeton, NJ-based math educational organizations including the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, the DIMACS Research and Education Institute, and the Institute for Advanced Study. This interactive laboratory is one product of that collaboration.
I would like to thank Linda Stewart of IAS for perceptive criticism which substantially changed my approach (support for multiple learning styles). Elisabeth de Boor (my mother, the artist) helped me make better use of color.
