I am hoping I can use this forum to announce a suggestion (as a layman) and tap into the network of mathematicians.
Firstly I'm not a mathematican of any type, nor do I posses any computer skills. Infact I'm quite bad at both.
However I recently stumbled across a webpage by Professor Poole, where he has put the first four books of Euclid's Elements online in an interactive/visual step-by-step process. I was instantly hooked! Unfortunately he stops at book four though, which is a bit annoying, but here is the link I'm talking about:
I'm not sure what computer program was used to create this website, but I find it extremely effective as a learning tool. For some reason I would never of read Euclid step-by-step from a book, but using this website I can follow the reasoning process quite easily. In fact its quite hard not to follow the logic as every step is highlighted in a simple, clear and plain manner (click on any random Proposition to see what I mean).
I would LOVE to be able to use a website like this to learn say, the Conics by Apollonius, or the works of Archimedes or Heron. All those fascinating classic math books I keep reading/hearing about.
As such I'm hoping someone out there in the aether may also have an interest in these classic math texts, as well as have the skills/time to develop something similar to the Euclid site above.
Thanks so much for your time!
