      Mathematics and Constitution Day - T2T Lesson Ideas
          Early Career Profiles Project | Number Time

                Mathematics and Constitution Day

  A new law mandates that, starting this year, schools that
  receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Education
  "implement an educational program pertaining to the United
  States Constitution ...."

  We have started listing resources and activities that you
  could use in mathematics class as your students observe
  Constitution Day on Friday, September 16, this year. If you
  have suggestions to add, please submit them.




  The goal of the Early Career Profiles Network is to collect
  relevant and timely information about career opportunities
  for undergraduate mathematical sciences majors that can be
  broadly disseminated to high school and college students.

  This departmental network providing profiles of recent
  graduates is a straightforward and efficient way to continue
  the flow of timely career information needed by students,
  counselors, teachers, and faculty. The Early Career Profile
  Network is supported in part by the Alfred P. Sloan
  Foundation under the auspices of the Sloan Career Cornerstone
