Rubistar | Mathematics and the Census - New T2T FAQ THE MATHEMATICAL EXPLORER Stan Wagon and Wolfram Research, Inc. http://www.wolfram.com/products/explorer/ Based on Mathematica technology, The Mathematical Explorer mixes text, graphics, and formulas in an easy-to-use notebook interface, offering a set of explorations for investigating some of the most fascinating topics in mathematics, from Escher patterns and square wheels to Fermat's Last Theorem and the Riemann Hypothesis. This electronic textbook also serves as a guide, calculator, and museum. The Mathematical Explorer web site links to in-depth explorations on these topics: - prime numbers - calculus - pi - check digits - secret codes - turtle fractalization - patterns in chaos - unusual number systems - the four-color theorem Experiment with some of these Mathematical Explorer subjects online: http://www.wolfram.com/products/explorer/msp/ \|/ Stan Wagon runs the Macalester College Problem of the Week hosted by the Math Forum @ Drexel. http://mathforum.org/wagon/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- RUBISTAR http://rubistar.4teachers.org/ This online tool by the High Plains Regional Technology in Education Consortium helps teachers develop rubrics for Oral Projects, Multimedia, Research & Writing, or Work Skills. Create rubrics (scoring tools) for Oral Projects, Multimedia, Research & Writing, or Work Skills quickly and easily. Math specific scoring tools currently include graphing and problem-solving. The Rubistar tool provides features for reviewing, editing, and customizing rubrics, and assigns each a unique web address so that parents and students can view or print the rubrics at their convenience. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATH IN THE REAL WORLD - T2T FAQ MATHEMATICS AND THE CENSUS http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/census.html Classroom resources for studying and explaining the mathematics involved in the election process.
