Due to the rapid growth of the Internet and mobile web usage, costs of mathematics teaching learning software, and the challenges of traditional and Web-based online classes, free and available Web 2.0 applications may provide a means for improving the teaching and learning of
mathematics. This paper presents authors experience of the implementation of a Web 2.0-based collaborative model implemented in a College Euclidean Geometry Course conducted at a university in the western United States. The study found that the implementation of a blogging
activity in the Euclidean Geometry class to be collaborative, convenient, effective, enjoyable, and applicable in other mathematics classes. Despite some difficulties and limitations of the free blog service used, the study suggests that blogs and other Web 2.0 technologies could provide an important avenue for fostering improved mathematics in today’s technologically advanced society.
