           HIGH SCHOOL OPERATIONS RESEARCH - MODULES

                   http://hsor.org/modules.cfm

  High School Operations Research's modules provide activities
  that facilitate conceptual discovery in students as they solve
  scaled-down problems they can relate to. The ten modules
  currently available are organized under these topics:

    - Decision Analysis
    - Manipulative Functions
    - Probability & Simulation
    - Routing Through Networks
    - Structured Decision Making
    - Systems of Inequalities

  Since 1996, High School Operations Research has been
  developing instructional materials for use in high school
  mathematics classrooms. The writing team that developed these
  modules consisted of high school mathematics teachers
  directed by a mathematics teacher educator and a professor of
  operations research.

  High School Operations Research is a project sponsored by
  the Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering Department of
  Wayne State University, the Institute for Operations Research
  and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), and the National
  Security Agency (NSA).

               CELEBRATING MORE THAN A CENTURY
               OF SCIENCE ON US POSTAGE STAMPS

http://www.usps.com/communications/news/stamps/2005/sr05_024.htm

  Four American scientists -- thermodynamicist Josiah Willard
  Gibbs, geneticist Barbara McClintock, mathematician John
  von Neumann and physicist Richard P. Feynman -- were honored
  with postage stamps dedicated in a special ceremony
  May 4, 2005, at Henry R. Luce Hall, Yale University,
  New Haven, CT.

  The stamps are available at Post Offices and philatelic
  centers nationwide starting May 5 and can also be purchased
  online:
