When you speak of WEB based lessons, are you saying that we would have
students at computers interacting with whatever is at that site and
doing "discovery" lessons or just "reading" about let's say Art Gallery
Problems and their applications like a tutorial? Or would there be
let's say Geometry Sketchpad scripts that could be activated to
demonstrate a Voronai graph?
