Math on the Web: A Status Report

Robert Miner and Paul Topping

July 2001 Focus: Distance Learning

November 2004 Editor's Note: This article was the second in a series of status reports by the principals of Design Science, Inc. The series now numbers six, the most recent appearing in September, 2003. Our original intent was to co-publish each report as it appeared, on the grounds that the JOMA readership would be quite different from the readers who would go directly to the Design Science site -- but just as needful for the information. For no particularly good reason, we never followed through with that plan, although the authors were quite willing for us to co-publish. Of course, you can just as easily click a link to Design Science as to "page 2" on our site. So that is how we will access this article from now on -- along with the rest of the series.

July 2001 Editor's Note: JOMA is co-publishing this article, which also appears on the Design Science web site, as a public service to our readers and to bring this information to a broader audience than might find it otherwise. Because of the time-sensitive nature of the information -- as well as its importance to developers, authors, readers, and our future as an online journal -- we have not subjected this article to our usual refereeing process. The authors are frank to admit in places that parts of the article serve the commercial interests of Design Science. Nevertheless, we have found their Status Reports (this piece and its predecessor in January 2001) to be comprehensive, balanced, informative, and readable articles about the progress and promise of MathML and related technologies for communicating mathematics on the World Wide Web.
