December 12 2005 Vol. 10, No. 50 THE MATH FORUM @ DREXEL INTERNET NEWS IAS/PCMI Applications and Information, Summer 2006 Math Marvels | The Nobel Prize in Physics - Educational 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: http://mathforum.org/pcmi/hstp/ 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. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- THE NOBEL PRIZE IN PHYSICS - EDUCATIONAL http://nobelprize.org/physics/educational/ On this site developed by The Nobel Foundation students can step through explanations of physics concepts, some with Flash activities: - Microscopes - Explore hidden worlds - 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 - Play the Recycler game and learn about transistors - Welcome to the basic tour of semiconductor physics - The Quantised World -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- 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\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
