               THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS


FEATURED INTERNET RESOURCE: MAA ONLINE - TEACHING & LEARNING

         http://www.maa.org/t_and_l/index.html

The MAA Teaching and Learning Web pages are designed to 
provide useful and thoughtful articles about teaching 
mathematics.

- John and Annie Selden's Research Sampler column is called 
  "Of What Does Mathematical Knowledge Consist?"  It begins 
  with the deliberations of the Summer 1995 ICME-8 Working 
  Group on Forms of Mathematical Knowing and continues on 
  from there. The column will appear every three months.

- The Innovative Teaching Exchange, edited by Bonnie Gold, 
  is a forum for people teaching mathematics at the 
  college level to share new methods they have tried, 
  invented, or discovered. Interested teachers are 
  invited to contribute.
