                     Project Poison Applet

                   TODOS: MATHEMATICS FOR ALL


   A new national organization, TODOS: Mathematics for ALL,
   was formally launched on Thursday, April 10, 2003 during
   the annual meeting of the National Council of Teachers of
   Mathematics, held in San Antonio, Texas.

   The Mission of TODOS is "to advocate for an equitable and
   high quality mathematics education for ALL students, in
   particular Latino/Hispanic students, by advancing the
   professional growth and equity awareness of educators."


   The organization dues are $25 for a one-year membership
   and $70 for a three-year membership. Contact Nora Ramirez,
   Treasurer, by email at, if
   you have any questions.


                        CRYPTOGRAPHY A-Z


   The authors of this site present the information to
   de-mystify cryptography. They state that "The use of
   cryptography is no longer a privilege reserved for
   governments and highly skilled specialists, but is becoming
   available for everyone to make use of." Their resources are
   divided into these categories:

     Introduction to Cryptography
       - Basic Terminology
       - Basic Cryptographic Algorithms
       - Digital Signatures
       - Cryptographic Hash Functions
       - Cryptographic Random Number Generators
       - Strength of Cryptographic Algorithms
       - Cryptanalysis and Attacks on Cryptosystems
       - Public Key Cryptosystems
       - Secret Key Cryptosystems
       - Cryptographic Hash Functions
       - Random Number Generators
     Protocols and Standards
     Online Resources


                       PROJECT POISON APPLET


   This site has been created by first year computer science
   students at Trinity College as a Java programming project.
   Each of the following topics has several pages explaining
   different concepts in that topic including, a Java applet to
   help demonstrate the math concept.

     Sequences & Series
     Complex Numbers
     Further Calculus
     Further Probability
