It provides a series of seminars, resource guides, cases and other written material, referrals, and phone consultations to help facilitate discussion and decision-making among stakeholders within a district. MCC supports 13 programs: ELEMENTARY Everyday Mathematics (K-6) Investigations in Number, Data, and Space (K-5) Math Trailblazers (TIMS) (K-5) MIDDLE SCHOOL Connected Mathematics (6-8) Mathematics in Context (5-8) MathScape: Seeing and Thinking Mathematically (6-8) MathThematics (STEM) (6-8) Middle-school Mathematics Through Applications Project II (6-8) HIGH SCHOOL Contemporary Mathematics in Context (Core-Plus Mathematics Project) (9-12) Interactive Mathematics Program (9-12) MATH Connections (9-11) Mathematics: Modeling Our World (ARISE) (9-12) SIMMS Integrated Mathematics: A Modeling Approach Using Technology (9-12) Curriculum summaries are available from the MCC site: http://www.edc.org/mcc/amcc.html#What -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- HISTORIA-MATEMATICA - a multilingual math history mailing list - http://mathforum.org/epigone/historia_matematica/ A virtual forum for scholarly discussion of the history of mathematics among professionals and non-professionals with a serious interest in the field. English, Portuguese, and Spanish are the official languages of the list, although postings in other languages (French, German, Italian, etc.), preferably with accompanying abstracts in English, are also welcome. All traditional and scholarly aspects of the history may be discussed, and in addition such topics as: - history of the history of mathematics - current trends in the history of mathematics - history of mathematics outside Europe - ethnomathematics - pedagogical issues - origin of mathematical terms/symbols - biographies and obituaries - bibliographical references (databases) - announcements and reviews of new books, articles, preprints, websites, ... - advertisements of conferences, meetings, jobs, ... The list is unmoderated and closed.
