                        CBMS 2000 REPORT


  A comprehensive survey of undergraduate mathematics and
  statistics programs, Statistical Abstract of Undergraduate
  Programs in the Mathematical Sciences in the United States,
  has just been released.

  The report presents longitudinal data on mathematical
  sciences enrollments, majors, curricula, and faculties. In
  addition, the CBMS 2000 report studies the spread of calculus
  reform, distance learning, dual enrollments, the mathematical
  education of pre-service K-8 teachers, and the educational
  background of faculty teaching undergraduate statistics.

  Mathematics departments in two- and four-year colleges and
  universities will receive copies of the report, and
  individuals may purchase hard copies from the American
  Mathematical Society, or may download the report from the
  web site.
