Introducing the Virtual Math Teams Project:
The VMT Project investigates issues of online collaborative math problem solving by extending the Math Forum's popular "problem of the week" service for use by small groups of students. These issues include the pedagogy of online collaborative learning of school mathematics, the design of appropriate software and the methodology of empirical research in such settings. The National Science Foundation awarded several major grants to Drexel University's College of Information Science and the Math Forum to develop the VMT service. The VMT Project is directed by Gerry Stahl and Steve Weimar.
