    SUMMER SESSION APPLICATION GUIDELINES AND INFORMATION
             IAS/PARK CITY MATHEMATICS INSTITUTE

                 http://www.ias.edu/parkcity/

  The 2006 Summer Session of the IAS/Park City Mathematics
  Institute will be held in Park City, Utah, from
  June 25 - July 15, 2006. This three week residential
  program is organized into six groups:

      - Secondary School Teachers Program
      - Undergraduate Faculty Program
      - Mathematics Education Research Program
      - Graduate Summer School
      - Undergraduate Summer School
      - Research Program

  These groups meet simultaneously, pursuing both individual
  courses of study and a meaningful amount of interaction.
  The rich mathematical experience combined with interaction
  among all participants results in greatly increased
  understanding and awareness of the issues confronting
  mathematics and mathematics education today.

  The research topic for 2006 is "Low Dimensional Topology"
  and the education topic is "Mathematics Knowledge for
  Teaching."

  Teachers are given full support and a stipend during the
  Summer Session. In addition, 6 quarter-credits of 400-level
  mathematics are available from the University of Washington
  for a nominal fee.

  Learn more about the Secondary School Teachers Program by
  viewing the information posted from previous years on the
  PCMI@MathForum site:

  Deadline for submission of applications is February 15, 2006.
  The IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute is an outreach
  program of the School of Mathematics at the Institute for
  Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, New Jersey.

                          MATH MARVELS

http://www.3villagecsd.k12.ny.us/wmhs/Departments/Math/OBrien/mathmarvels.html

  Students from Mrs. O'Brien's Sequential III Honors math
  class created this project with the intention of learning
  about a mathematician whose work has influenced the course
  of mathematics as well as curriculum.

  The pages feature information on the lives of mathematicians
  written in a dialogue format with imagined conversation
  between the interviewing student and the mathematician.

    - Look into the interior of matter
    - How does E = mc^2 give the answer?
    - X-rays, what are they?
    - What are accelerators?
    - How is the world of particles studied?
    - Play the Liquid Crystal games
    - Play the Laser Challenge game
    - Play the Techville game and learn about integrated
        circuits
