Macalester Problem of the Week
http://mathforum.org/wagon/
MacPOW is back! After a semester's hiatus, Stan Wagon, of
Macalester College, has resumed posting a mathematics problem
to his students every week. The Math Forum posts these problems
and keeps an archive of past problems. Over 300 challenging,
undergraduate math problems are available in our archive,
dating back fifteen years.
Problem previews announced to the
macpow mailing list of more than 800 subscribers have led to
the publication of several research papers. For subscription
instructions, see:
http://mathforum.org/wagon/about.html
Macalester's Problem of the Week tradition was started in 1968
by the late Professor Joe Konhauser. Professor Wagon took over
in 1993. Since the problems are meant to be accessible to
firstyear college students, very little background is needed
to understand or solve them.

Since we last featured the complex numbers section of Alan
Selby's site "Appetizers and Lessons for Mathematics and Reason"
in March this year, he has added a new section, Mathematics
Education Revisited:

Selby has also included a section called POMME: Progressive
Observable Motivated Mathematics Education, which he describes
as "a twolevel program for practical mathematics instruction."

International Group for Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness
http://www.igmcg.org/
At this past summer's Sixth International Conference on Creativity in Mathematics Education and the Education of Gifted Students in Riga, Latvia, more than 80 participants from
20 countries established the new International Group for
Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness (MCG).
The group plans to concentrate on:
 mathematical creativity for all students, from all
backgrounds, and of all ages
 mathematical creativity, aptitude, and achievement
 mathematical giftedness, talent, and promise
 mathematical creativity for individuals or teams, inside
or outside the classroom
 mathematics competitions
The group invites those with professional interest in these
topics to apply for membership; comments are welcome from any
persons with an interest in these topics.
