April to be Math Awareness Month (MAM) | COMAP |
Les Prépublications APRIL TO BE MATH AWARENESS MONTH (MAM) The Joint Policy Board for Mathematics (JPBM), comprised of the MAA, AMS, SIAM, and sponsor Texas Instruments Inc., announces that Math Awareness Month - formerly Math Awareness Week - will be observed during the month of April, 1999. The Web site will once again be hosted by the Math Forum: This year's theme is Mathematics and Biology, with essays on "Mathematics in the Heart" and "Math and DNA"; the 1999 poster depicts the electrical activity of a normal heart stimulated at a single point. We encourage you to SUBMIT ANNOUNCEMENTS OF 1999 activities being planned for your school, company, or community: Activities will be posted at: \|/ Since 1991 yearly MAW themes and activities have included mathematics and the environment, manufacturing, medicine, symmetry, decision making, the Internet, and imaging. Articles, links, and other resources and records of prior local, state, and regional celebrations are archived by the Math Forum at: -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CONSORTIUM FOR MATHEMATICS AND ITS APPLICATIONS (COMAP) COMAP is a non-profit organization developing curriculum materials and teacher development programs designed to be multidisciplinary, academically rigorous, and fun to teach and learn. COMAP's educational philosophy is centered around mathematical modeling: using mathematical tools to explore real-world problems. Its products are developed in print, video, and multimedia formats, and support the NCTM Standards: - for college undergraduates: real world mathematics texts, resources in print, video, and software, and student contests such as MathServe, which seeks to inspire collaborative projects that use mathematical skills to address social, health, or environmental challenges; MathServe: - for grades 9-12, an integrated core curriculum called Mathematics: Modeling Our World, preparing students for college-level mathematics and the world of work, with supplemental teaching resources and professional development programs; - for elementary school teachers, an introduction to the NCTM standards, with an emphasis on curriculum and professional development. An electronic catalog for ordering materials is available, and you can register to receive updates and information. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- For our international readers: preprints in France, Europe, and the world...
