The availability of interactive web texts and the search for interactions that would better involve students in investigative activities and teachers in guiding explorations has created a lot of expectations from a new type of book: web books, sometimes called interactive books. The domain of such interactive environments is new and yet to be explored. In developing the Function Web Book we implemented observations and research findings spanning a decade of investigations of learning by students and of professional development attempts by teachers, as well as knowledge gathered from working with educators on changing classrooms norms while using the Visual Mathematics materials in Israeli secondary schools. The Function Web Book is intended to allow educators worldwide to study the many facets of interactive electronic writing with the objective of fostering the thinking habits of students and the professional growth of teachers and curriculum developers.
