Attend ICME-11 in Monterrey, Mexico


Creative Geometry


Cathi Sanders has recently completed a new set of web pages, adding to the collection hosted on the Math Forum site.

Teachers and students will find creative and interesting "hands-on" projects for most topics in the geometry curriculum. Each project is designed to help students understand, remember, and find value in the concepts of geometry.

The pages are organized under the following chapters:

  • Triangles and Segments in a Triangle
  • Quadrilaterals
  • Other Polygons
  • Similar Triangles in Geometry
  • Trigonometry
  • Parallel and Non-Parallel Lines
  • Circles and Other Curves
  • Area and Volume
  • Locus

The MathMentor


The Math Forum @ Drexel is now offering the MathMentor, an online mentoring program that is designed to expand students' career aspirations and help them to develop interest in math, science and technology.

The MathMentor is sponsored by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation and will include a limited number of 200 high-achieving, low-income students.

The participants of the MathMentor will be part of a learning community that discusses solution strategies of non-routine math problems. This community will consist of the students and a group of experienced mentors who will support and guide the students as they learn more about math in a fun, and innovative way.

Attend ICME-11 in Monterrey, Mexico


Applications for travel grants are now available to attend the Eleventh International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME-11), which will be held in Monterrey, Mexico, from July 6-13, 2008. Contingent on the funding of a proposal pending at the National Science Foundation, grants will be available and awarded by December 30, 2007.

The National Science Foundation grants are available only to U.S. citizens and will support travel expenses to ICME-11 for K-12 mathematics teachers, mathematicians, graduate students and mathematics teacher educators from the United States. Elementary, middle, and high school teachers and graduate students are strongly encouraged to apply.

The application deadline is September 30, 2007.
