18 November 1996 Vol. 1, No. 7 Susan Boone's Lessons | Discussion Archives | Minority Math THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS http://mathforum.org/ 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 Look for information about GirlTECH at http://www.crpc.rice.edu/CRPC/Women/GirlTECH/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- 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/ .::. .::. .::.

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.
