Potential authors, who need not be members of NCTM, should submit a first draft of the proposed manuscript by March 1, 2003. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATH FACTS - Lynn Robinson http://home.indy.rr.com/lrobinson/mathfacts/mathfacts.html Robinson's site has an interactive math facts flash card program designed to improve speed in calculation. Math Facts provides addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems, allowing the user to select the range of integers, positive and negative. Runs best with Internet Explorer (IE 5 or 6) or with Netscape (Mozilla) version 7 or higher. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- LESSONS IN MATHEMATICS AND ART http://php.indiana.edu/~mathart/viewpoints/lessons/ These modules designed for classroom use were developed for the VIEWPOINTS mathematics and art workshops given by Marc Frantz, Indiana University, and Annalisa Crannell, Franklin & Marshall College. Each lesson is available as a PDF file: - Introduction to Perspective and Space Coordinates - Perspective by the Numbers - Vanishing Points and Looking at Art - Rectangles in One-Point Perspective - Anamorphic Art - Fractal Geometry - Perspective Super-Problems VIEWPOINTS http://php.indiana.edu/~mathart/viewpoints/ VIEWPOINTS is a series of workshops for college and high school instructors on the connections between Mathematics and Art, and the power of those connections to add interest and excitement to the presentation of either subject. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- 10 LESSONS IN FRACTALS, COMPLEX PATTERNS, AND CHAOS - Jon Lee http://mathforum.org/te/exchange/hosted/lee/ These lessons are an outgrowth of Jon Lee's involvement with the Wright-Connection program held at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio, during 1995-1999. The eight week summer program was designed to infuse the excitement of math and science into the classroom teaching of middle/high school math and science teachers. They participated in the real-world applications of math and science in an Air Force research laboratory. The main goal of the project is to explain the basic ideas underlying what is now known as nonlinear dynamics or chaos science. The ideas are explained in simple language so that the students can build up a repertoire of terminologies as they study further in this subject area.
