About EMIT.org

This website was started in 1996 by a teacher, as an experiment to learn html, using simple text files and pictures. Over time it has been expanded to include original 2D and 3D graphics and animation. The range of subjects is eclectic, including art, science, politics, and educational materials. The links at the top indicate the main subjects.

Recently I have created many materials for teaching basic math and algebra. [A duplicate set of my math materials is also posted at the Orange County Schools Educator's Association Website at http://www.ocsea.com/ocseamath/mathindex.html]

2017 technical note: The entire site is still retro-html, just tables and basic javascript. EMIT = TIME
