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 - Albro Swift - Quotations -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PROBLEMS WITH A POINT http://www2.edc.org/mathproblems/default.asp 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.

The Communication Revolution, an article by Susan Boone, describes her experience as a participant in the Math Forum's Bridging Research and Practice project. http://www.enc.org/focus/horizons/document.shtm?input=FOC-002323-index Subscribe to ENC Focus and receive all future issues of ENC Focus in the mail free of charge: http://www.enc.org/register/ \|/ Bridging Research and Practice (BRAP) http://mathforum.org/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. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/discussions/ 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\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
