                           DIG STATS

             http://www.cvgs.k12.va.us/DIGSTATS/

  This site from the Central Virginia Governor's School for
  Science and Technology is a resource for integrating
  statistics and data visualization into mathematics and
  science courses.

  It features activities that conceptually introduce students
  in grades 9-14 to statistical and graphical analysis
  techniques. Technology is used to do the mathematical
  calculations so students can focus on interpreting the
  results and developing a conceptual understanding of the
  statistical and graphical techniques.

  The modules, all with discussions and hands-on activities,
  cover descriptive statistics, inferential statistics,
  two-dimensional graphical analysis, and three-dimensional
  data visualization.

                    MULTICULTURAL MATH FAIR

         http://mathforum.org/alejandre/mathfair/

  During the 1993-1994 school year, the mathematics department
  of Frisbie Middle School, Rialto, California, initiated a
  Multicultural Math Fair. As a resource, Frisbie teachers
  used Addison Wesley's textbook "Multiculturalism in
  Mathematics, Science and Technology: Readings and Activities"
  [ISBN 0-201-29417-6].

  Drawing inspiration from the book's activities, the
  department's nine mathematics teachers wrote directions for
  the students to follow. In developing activities, attention
  was given to the genders, cultures, and continents of the
  mathematicians represented.
