ALN Math Teacher Blogging Contest
http://edutech.csun.edu/aln/?q=node/201
The Algebra Learning Network (ALN) encourages math teachers to
share their experiences teaching math in the classroom. To that
end, they're sponsoring this contest: teachers who blog about
their teaching between February 15 and May 31 are eligible to
win subscriptions to ExploreLearning Gizmos.
Post your blog on the ALN site to enterposts must be original
work, but may also be posted somewhere else.
NASA: No Boundaries
http://www.noboundariesstemcareers.com/
Developed by NASA and USA TODAY Education, this project will
help you explore careers in science, technology, engineering
and math (STEM), as you learn about NASA, the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration. Teams of students
research careers in the STEM disciplines, then make a creative
presentation to market those careers to their peers.
Presentations may be entered in a national contest.
Instructions for teachers and students are available on the
site; the entry deadline is May 15, 2009.
Virtual Math Museum
http://VirtualMathMuseum.org/
A virtual "mathematical museum" being developed and improved by
an international group of mathematicians called the 3DXM
Consortium. In addition to images, the museum also offers some
applets and explanatory papers available for download as PDFs.
Topics include:
 plane curves
 space curves
 conformal maps
 fractals & chaos
 surfaces
 mathematical art
 polyhedra
 ordinary differential equations (ODEs)
3DXM Consortium is the same group responsible for developing
the 3DXplorMath mathematical visualization program:
