>Has anybody worked on Hypercard-Mathematica interactive connection?? If I am interpreting the question correctly, the answer is a partial yes. There is a project in the works at Wellesley College to use SuperCard in developing a front-end for Mma for use in teaching calculus. I have only seen a short demo of the stack (called "Calculus Menus"), so I cannot tell much more about its functionality. I do, however, have a short description from the developers, plus the developers' names and addresses: "Calculus Menus for the Macintosh is a shell for Mathematica that we are developing at Wellesley to allow students to use menus and dialog boxes rather than Mathematica commands. Each semester over 200 students use these and several smaller-scale programs together with traditional calculus texts in our Mathematics Graphics Classroom."
