8 April 2002 Vol. 7, No. 14 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS Web Feats II | Proof - Prueba - Preuve Mathematical Presentations and Articles - Taylor WEB FEATS II A Workshop on Design of Classroom Lessons in Mathematics from Web-based Materials http://www.math.duke.edu/education/webfeatsII/WebFeatsII.html The Post CALC Project at Duke University and the United States Military Academy are jointly sponsoring a workshop for high school mathematics teachers interested in creating classroom materials from existing and new web-based components. The workshop will be held at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY, during the week of July 22-26, 2002. It will feature a survey of useful sites, an examination of what makes an effective online lesson, and an opportunity to work in a small group to create sample materials. A discussion site will allow participants to continue developing the contacts made at the workshop. The first Web Feats workshop, also conducted by Duke University, took place last summer at The Eisenhower National Clearinghouse in Columbus, OH. http://www.math.duke.edu/education/webfeats/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PROOF - PRUEBA - PREUVE International Newsletter on The Teaching and Learning of Mathematical Proof http://www-didactique.imag.fr/preuve/indexUK.html The monthly "Newsletter on Proof" is dedicated to the teaching and learning of proof in mathematics. At the time of each issue a text in three languages (French, English and Castilian) presents a position, a summary or a result on some aspect of the teaching or the learning of proof. Readers are invited to respond with their reactions or commentaries, which will then be published in subsequent newsletters. Also available at this site is a database on research publications, with downloadable articles and author contacts, on the learning and teaching of mathematical proof. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATHEMATICAL PRESENTATIONS AND ARTICLES - James Taylor http://www.dovepresent.com/ A growing collection of PowerPoint presentations and articles written by James Taylor, of Moriah College in Australia.
