FEATURED INTERNET RESOURCE: MATH LESSONS by SUSAN BOONE

  http://www.cs.rice.edu/~sboone/Lessons/lptitle.html

Under the auspices of GirlTECH, like Cynthia Lanius,
last week's featured writer, SUSAN BOONE has written 
a series of math lessons that require research on the 
Internet such as reviewing census data or searching 
for local housing prices. 

Using information they find on the Internet, students 
derive equations, create graphs, and make predictions 
about future trends. Sample Topics:

  A Functional Housing Market
  The Internet Pizza Server
  Pop Clock
  INDY 500
  Houston Area Real-Time Traffic Report

     WHAT DID THEY SAY AND WHEN DID THEY SAY IT?


NEW SOFTWARE FOR DISCUSSIONS AND ARCHIVES

Providing places for public discussion of matters of 
concern to the mathematics community is an important 
part of the Math Forum's goal of building a center for 
all who have an interest in math education. 

To archive these discussions, we've created new software 
with list-specific searching built in. Archives of a 
number of math newsgroups and mailing lists are accessible 
from our site. Here are a few of the most active:

  k12.ed.math
    http://mathforum.org/epigone/k12.ed.math/

  math-history-list
    http://mathforum.org/epigone/math-history-list/

  nctm-l
    http://mathforum.org/epigone/nctm-l/

  sci.math
    http://mathforum.org/discuss/sci.math/

                     .::.  .::.  .::.

             AFRICAN AMERICAN MATHEMATICIANS


  On November 7, Mrs. J. Dean wrote to Dr. Math:

    I am trying to compile a list of African American 
    mathematicians.  Do you have any suggestions or 
    Internet URLs where I can find some info?  Thanks.

                     .::.  .::.  .::.

Dr. Math did some Web research and sent Mrs. Dean a partial 
answer, now stored in our Ask Dr. Math archive:

http://mathforum.org/dr.math/problems/dean11.7.96.html


We've also added the National Association of Mathematicians
(NAM) to our Web page on Minorities and Mathematics:

http://mathforum.org/social/math.minorities.html 


We think that you can help us add to and broaden the Web
resources available on minorities and mathematics, and
we'd welcome comments and feedback. Please write to
