A Mathwright Microworld is an HTML document (i.e., a web page) that an author may create with any handy HTML editor. The document becomes a Mathwright Microworld when the author embeds a "portal" that he or she creates independently with the Mathwright32 Author program.

MicroWorlds helps you explore Logo programming using graphics, music, animation, and other multimedia techniques. Many topics are covered in this book: interactive stories, multimedia presentations, action games, and mind games.
