Worlds of Interactive Mathematics, Part I: The Legacy of Elias Deeba, Saturday, 9:00 a.m. - 10:55 a.m.; Part II: The Legacy of James E. White, Saturday, 3:15 p.m. - 5:10 p.m., organized by Ananda Gunawardena, Carnegie Mellon University; Dan Kalman, American University; and Gerald J. Porter, University of Pennsylvania. One of the initial authoring environments for the creation of interactive texts was the Mathkit language developed by Jim White. White's work led to the creation of the MAA's Interactive Mathematical Text Project (IMTP), funded by IBM and the NSF. White not only provided much of the intellectual material for this project but he also, through this project and the subsequent Project Welcome, provided hands-on training in the use of the tools. Elias Deeba was both a participant in these endeavors and the director of the IMTP at the University of Houston, Downtown. We take this opportunity to honor them for their leadership and to continue the work that they have begun. In these sessions we will highlight some of their contributions, as well as showcasing recent developments in the field which bear the stamp of their influence. Speakers include Ananda Gunawardena, Elias Deeba's work; Zuhair Nashed, University of Central Florida, Some paradigms in elementary linear algebra which Elias liked; Dan Kalman and Gerald J. Porter, James White's work; Samad Mortabit, Metropolitan State University, Mathwright activities; and Margie A. Hale, Stetson University, Interactive investigation of geometry through light rays.
