5 May 1997 Vol. 2, No. 18 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS MathPages | Finite Math/Applied Calc | Principia Hypertextica KEVIN BROWN'S MATHPAGES http://www.seanet.com/~ksbrown/ If you've been wondering about Zeisel Numbers, Machin's Merit, How (or How NOT) to Prove Pi is Irrational, Golf Tournaments and Latin Squares, or The Importance of Being Urnest, this is the site for you. It contains over 300 articles on a variety of mathematical topics, including: - Algebra - Calculus and Differential Equations - Combinatorics - Geometry - History of Mathematics - Music - Number Theory - Physics - Probability and Statistics - Set Theory and Foundations and a 'Most Wanted List' of elementary unsolved problems, link-referenced and updated by Brown as others solve them - 'elementary' because no special background is required to understand them, 'unsolved' because Brown doesn't know the answers and they've been posted on the newsgroup sci.math but no one has answered them. http://www.seanet.com/~ksbrown/mwlist.htm -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- FINITE MATHEMATICS AND APPLIED CALCULUS http://www.hofstra.edu/~matscw/realworld.html Designed to be a complete Web resource for the subject, this site is based on three applied texts by Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble of Hofstra University. Online interactive tutorials, topic summaries, true/false quizzes, and review exercises correspond to chapters in these textbooks on finite mathematics and calculus applied to the real world. The site also provides three complete online texts for Liberal Arts and Business Majors, with exercises and applications: - Introduction to Logic - Trigonometric Functions and Calculus - Probability and Calculus. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- TYPESETTING MATH - GUIDELINES FROM PRINCIPIA HYPERTEXTICA William I. Johnston http://world.std.com/~wij/web-design/typesetting.html Mathematics can be difficult to convey in HTML. Johnston, a former math teacher and current editor of textbooks for Houghton Mifflin, writes in detail about the problems, gives suggestions for using ASCII and GIF files, and supplies notes on proposals andexperimental projects such as MINSE, the Integrator, Java applets, and Portable Document Format (PDF). Typesetting Math is an essay from a larger collection wherein Johnston offers advice about speed, accessibility, validity, and navigability on the Web, with links to information about these issues: A MATHEMATICS EDUCATOR'S VIEW OF WEB DESIGN http://world.std.com/~wij/web-design/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problem of the Week http://mathforum.org/geopow/ Internet Resources http://mathforum.org/~steve/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
