October 17 2005 Vol. 10, No. 42 THE MATH FORUM @ DREXEL INTERNET NEWS Cool School Tools | Terrystickels.com AMS Releases Latest Mathematical Moments COOL SCHOOL TOOLS - MATH TOPIC OR GRADE LEVEL http://www.coolschooltools.com/TFM-MathTopic.html Math educator Tim Fahlberg has created a variety of whiteboard movies. Requiring a Shockwave plug-in, the movies cover these topics: - 4th Grade Mathematics - 7th Grade - Intermediate Algebra (114 Movies) - Integrated Math 2 (Algebra, Geometry, Probability & Statistics) - Algebra - Probability - Mathematics of Finance A whiteboard movie (WM) is a multimedia screen recording of writing on an electronic whiteboard (real or virtual) with or without voice and/or subtititles. WMs can be non-interactive, with playback controls similar to a VCR, or interactive, requiring input from the viewer. WMs can also be extended to include screen recordings of software applications (On-screen calculators, Excel, Internet Explorer, AutoCAD, etc).

Or how the tiny fragments in an archaeological dig can be reassembled? Answers to these questions and more are in the American Mathematical Society's latest Mathematical Moments, which promote appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human culture. These introductory "snapshots" provide a handy, eye-catching, and concise way to show the many applications of mathematics -- in archaeology, data compression, CAT-scans, architecture, modern fountain design, the portable 20 Questions game, bin packing, and machine translation -- to audiences such as elected officials, students, parents and school teachers and administrators. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum @ Drexel http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/kb/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors Donations http://deptapp.drexel.edu/ia/GOL/giftsonline1_MF.asp Ask Dr. Math Books http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
