17 November 2003 Vol. 8, No. 46 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS Dr. Math Explains Algebra | Mathematical Moments - AMS Second Annual Drexel Math Contest DR. MATH EXPLAINS ALGEBRA by the Math Forum @ Drexel John Wiley & Sons ISBN 0-471-22555-X We are pleased to announce that "Dr. Math Explains Algebra" has joined our first book, "Dr. Math Gets You Ready for Algebra," in bookstores this month. With the holidays approaching consider giving both books as gifts! The second book includes dozens of letters from kids who've had trouble understanding algebraic concepts, along with answers from trained volunteers drawn from a pool of college students, mathematicians, teachers, and professionals from the mathematical community. Topics covered include linear equations, systems of equations, polynomials, factoring, quadratic equations, and much more. For more information and a link to purchase the book from Amazon.com, please visit: http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html We hope the books will find a place in classroom, library, and home collections. We invite you to display a link from your school's website to our book information page.

Since we last featured Mathematical Moments, the AMS has added nine new topics: - Tracing Your Routes - Charging Through Space - Beating Traffic - Making Connections - Bringing Robots to Life - Expressing Yourself - Cutting the Cord - Revolutionizing Computing - Defeating Disease Download standard PDFs or short versions of these and other examples of scientific, technological, and cultural applications of math. For further investigation into a Mathematical Moment, link to its related resource, an authoritative website that expands on the topic. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- SECOND ANNUAL DREXEL MATH CONTEST http://www.pages.drexel.edu/~schmutze/CONTEST/ High school students are invited to compete in the Second Annual Drexel Math Contest on Tuesday, December 16, 2003 from 9:15 am to 1:30 pm, at Drexel University.
