Dear Ralph,

The temporary URL of the thesaurus is:


I'll post a permanent URL to the group when this is available.

The thesaurus was password protected until 5 minutes ago, but it is
probably mature enough to make it publicly available. The web version
allows you to install an 'mbutton' in your browser. You can then select
any word or phrase on a web page, press the button, and look it up in the

We need to do more work on styling, but there is already a useful amount
of school level mathematics content. It is currently undergoing an
educational review by a group of mathematics teachers with the aim of
refining the language, illustrating the content further, and improving the
semantic linkage.

The original ontology was developed using Protege.

A small delegation from our project (The Millennium Mathematics Project)
is visiting MIT in March, sending out feelers as part of the
new Cambridge University/MIT link. Would it be sensible to arrange a
meeting there?
