17 March 1997 Vol. 2, No. 11 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS MathView | Math Awareness Week: Vermont | Ask Dr. Math FAQ MATHVIEW http://www.cybermath.com/ Waterloo Maple's MathView offers a new, interactive way of exploring and exchanging mathematical ideas. It's a browser plug-in that lets you edit and manipulate algebraic expressions, and animate and rotate graphs embedded in Web pages. (This is a new product and has some rough edges. It is better used for display or by experienced mathematicians than by students for exploration.) In the "Exploring Mathematics" section of the Cyberview site you can apply interpolating curves to the design of a mini-van, calculate the voltages in an AC circuit, or study projectile motion.You'll find subjects at the high school, college, and graduate levels, including: - Algebra - Complex Numbers - Fourier Analysis - Geometry - Fractals - Graphics Gallery - Statistics - Linear Algebra - Integration - Trigonometry - Optimization - Modeling - Vectors - Polyhedra - Solving Equations The site features a VRML Gallery of 3D images and the Maple code used to create them. You can also order the MathView algebra and graphing program to publish math live on the Internet. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATHEMATICS AWARENESS WEEK (MAW) 20-26 April 1997 http://mathforum.org/maw/ This year's theme: Mathematics and the Internet Many institutions have made Web pages to publicize their upcoming MAW events. A growing list can be found at: http://mathforum.org/maw/97/local/ Read about activities in store at the University of Vermont, including a poster contest for grades K-8, a math question call-in radio show, and a series of presentations by visiting lecturers. How is your institution celebrating Math Awareness Week? Do you have an MAW web page we should list? Fill out this form and let us know: http://mathforum.org/maw/activity.form.html Questions and comments about MAW may be sent to maw@mathforum.org -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- ASK DR.
