Golson Media invites academic editorial contributors to a new
reference work on the role of mathematics in everyday life to
be published by Salem Press in 2011. This comprehensive
encyclopedia is intended for highschool, college, public,
and academic libraries and includes 3 volumes of approximately
500 articles.
The editors are now making article assignments with a deadline
of July 1, 2010. See the link above for more information.
If you would like to contribute to the Encyclopedia of
Mathematics and Society, please contact Joseph K. Golson at
math@golsonmedia.com with a brief summary of your background
in math and social topics.
WolframAlpha for Educators
http://www.wolframalpha.com/educators/
Have you used WolframAlpha yet? Experimented with it in your
classroom? Would you like to do more with it? Wolfram has just
released a site for educators, where you can learn and share
some of the amazing things WolframAlpha can do for your kids.
Here you'll find:
 videos on using WolframAlpha in the classroom (covering
grade 4 through college)
 lesson plans (PDFs, with math topics from basic math
through calculus)
 an Education Group in the WolframAlpha Community, a forum
for new ideas
 links to other Wolfram resources, including the Wolfram
Demonstrations project and Mathematica
WolframAlpha in the College Classroom
Maria Andersen's Teaching College Math site, which we have
previously featured, has built up a category of blog posts
dedicated to WolframAlpha:

Google Public Data Explorer
http://www.google.com/publicdata/home
The Google Public Data Explorer is available for beta testing and comment. It is designed to make large
datasets easy to explore, visualize and communicate. As the
charts and maps animate over time, the changes in the world
become easier to understand. Easily navigate between different
views, make your own comparisons, and share your findings.
Users can play with the tool to create visualizations of
public data, link to them, or embed them in their own webpages.
Embedded charts and links can update automatically so you're
always sharing the latest available data.
