the International Boiling Point Project web site labeled a "unique
and compelling" Internet-based resource?
collaborative projects using the Internet in several ways to
allow student to communication and share information that
could not be done without the technology (e.g. online
discussion areas, collaborative databases, etc.). By
engaging in this type of collaborative experiment where real
data is being collected from schools around the world,
students are provided with a real world learning experience
that involves both math and science. These two factors make
this a “unique and compelling” resource.
