How We Got This Project On The Web
There are several steps that we followed to get this project onto the we.
Have students follow the directions given in the
How students created the tessellations.
Using the wordprocessor, have students give their tessellation a title
and write a sentence or two about their tessellation. We use The Writing Center
or MSWord 3.0.
Have the students scan their tessellation on a flatbed, color scanner.
We use an
AppleOne Color Scanner with Ofoto software, which saves the picture
in PICT format.
Have students use a graphics program that allows them to change the picture format
from PICT to JPEG or GIF, both acceptable for web use. The graphics program should
also be used to enhance their scanned image. We use Graphic Converter, a $35
shareware program that is invaluable for this purpose.
To get a set of the templates mentioned, go to
Multi-Page Template Handout.
Using a set of templates, and making sure all your files are in one folder at the same
level, cut and paste student text and images into appropriate places on each
web page. We use Netscape in local mode and Edit for this purpose.
Upload your finished web site to the machine that serves your page.
