Presentation 
OpenMath technologies in Algebra Interactive!
The first version of Algebra Interactive!
has been released about a year ago.
At the moment we are working on a second version of this
interactive book.
New technologies such as xml, xsl, MathML, OpenMath, a
markup language for mathematical content, and OMDOC , its extension
to mathematical documents, open a way of communicating mathematics
between computers, between software applications and over the Internet
without losing information.
We give an overview of the new OpenMath technologies
being used in the second version of Algebra Interactive!

Article 
OpenMath Technologies in Interactive Books
New technologies such as xml, xsl and both MathML and OpenMath
make
it possible to bring mathematics to the Internet. Indeed,
OpenMath, a
markup language for mathematical content, and OMDOC , its extension
to mathematical documents, open a way of communicating mathematics
between computers, between software applications and over the Internet
without losing information. In this paper we describe the latest
applications of OpenMath related technologies for interactive mathematical
documents. As an example
we describe the way we incorporate these new technologies in a new
version of Algebra Interactive, an interactive course on first and second year
university algebra.
