                 FRACTAL LANDSCAPES - Adam Brown

               http://www.fractal-landscapes.co.uk

  Adam Brown, who goes by the name "The Ostrich," displays the
  results of his computer programs, which generate fractal
  landscape and landscape rendering. His pages include

    About: illustrated explanation of the fractal
      landscapes project
    Images: gallery of "best" images
    Images 2: gallery of other computer generated images
    Photos: photography gallery
    Maths: introduction to the ideas behind fractal
      landscape generation
    Links: other fractal sites on the Internet

                     POLY 1.09 - Jeff Tupper

                    http://www.peda.com/poly/

  Jeff Tupper has recently announced an update to Poly, a
  shareware program for exploring and constructing polyhedra.
  With Poly, you can manipulate polyhedral solids on the
  computer in a variety of ways. Flattened versions (nets) of
  polyhedra may be printed and then cut out, folded, and taped,
  to produce three-dimensional models.

  For a list of the polyhedra included, please see:
    http://www.peda.com/poly/poly.html

  New features include:
    - Polish and Italian interfaces
    - JIF export
        If the polyhedron is moving or changing, an animated
        JIF is exported; otherwise, a static JIF is exported
    - PCX export
    - Geodesic spheres and domes
        All of the deltahedra currently included have been
        added to a new deltahedra category
    - Available Polyhedron Categories preference controls

  Also available in an updated version is Poly Pro 1.09

                 CLASS2CLASS - The Math Forum

              http://mathforum.org/class2class/

  Class2Class, a service created by Melanie Sprouse and hosted
  by the Math Forum, connects distant math classrooms in
  collaborations such as data-collecting experiments, taking
  advantage of one of the powerful features of the Internet:
  connecting people and information at a distance.

                        COMMON CENTS
              A Pooled Data Analysis Project

   http://mathforum.org/class2class/view.taco?class_id=74

  The goal is to collect and share data with other classes.
  Ever think about how many pennies are in circulation? How
  long they last? Classes will organize and count coins by
  date. The data will be shared and each class gets experience
  graphing, looking at variability and central tendencies.
  Common Cents is a project you can do with a set of pennies
  or really any coin.
