24 June 2002 Vol. 7, No. 25 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS MathML Conference 2002 | Plane Math The Probability/Statistics Object Library MATHML CONFERENCE 2002 Chicago, Illinois June 28-30 http://www.mathmlconference.org/ The aim of this conference is to bring together those people involved in defining the future of math on the Web. Presentations and discussions of current research and applications will emphasize MathML and technologies for mathematical and scientific content on the Web. It is sponsored by Wolfram Research, Waterloo Maple, Design Science, AMS, HP, IBM, ORCCA and W3C. There are introductory and advanced tutorials on the Friday preceding a full weekend program. Detailed information can be found at the conference's Web site. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PLANE MATH http://www.planemath.com/ Math and aeronautics materials to encourage elementary school students with physical disabilities to pursue aeronautics-related careers. PlaneMath teaches concepts without relying on the manipulation of tools, such as pencils, compasses, and rulers, which characterizes most math curricula. Activities involve finding the shortest path between two cities or how many people can board your plane, flying a herd of buffalo to the prairies, learning to fly a rescue helicopter and how planes lift, knowing when an overcast sky is really overcast, flying a kite, and planning a flight around the country. Teachers are invited to register their classes. http://www.planemath.com/cgi-bin/register.pl -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- THE PROBABILITY/STATISTICS OBJECT LIBRARY http://www.math.uah.edu/psol/ The Probability/Statistics Object Library is a resource for teachers and students of probability and statistics. The library contains objects of two basic types: applets, and components. The applets in the library contain essentially no mathematical theory and thus can be used by students at various levels. The applets are intended to be small "micro worlds" where students can run virtual versions of random experiments and play virtual versions of statistical games. Components are the building blocks of applets. Teachers and students with some programming experience can use them to create their own custom applets. A companion project is the Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics. http://www.math.uah.edu/stat/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- 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\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
