                     MATHPAGES - Kevin Brown


  Wondering about golf tournaments and Latin squares; how (and 
  how not) to prove that pi is irrational; or what the stars 
  in the sky look when projected onto a sphere? Brown's 
  MathPages discuss these and other topics:

    - Number Theory
    - Combinatorics
    - Geometry
    - Algebra
    - Calculus and Differential Equations
    - Probability and Statistics
    - Set Theory and Foundations
    - History of Mathematics
    - Physics
    - Music

  Longer presentations include: 
    - Reflections on Relativity
    - Symmetric Pseudoprimes
    - Linear Fractional Transformations
    - Lead-Lag Algorithms
    - Animated (Java) Illustrations
    - Combined List of Articles

    - Quotations


                      PROBLEMS WITH A POINT


  This site provides a resource for teachers who use, or are 
  beginning to use, a problem-centered approach. Problems are 
  classified by:
    - topic
    - time required
    - suggested technology
    - required mathematical background
    - habits of mind that students develop or use as they work

  Synopses of the problems are keyword searchable. Answers and 
  solutions are provided, and many problems include hints.

           Bridging Research and Practice (BRAP)


  The Math Forum's Bridging Research and Practice Group 
  consists of middle school and high school math teachers and 
  Math Forum staff who shared videotapes of their classrooms, 
  talked about their teaching, read research articles and 
  chapters, and reflected on their implications for practice. 
  The videopaper "Encouraging Mathematical Thinking Discourse 
  around a Rich Problem" presents the group's working knowledge 
  about how teachers engage students in mathematical thinking, 
  and why this is important.
