        REMINDER: 2005 NCTM YEARBOOK CALL FOR MANUSCRIPTS

          http://www.nctm.org/publications/yearbook.htm

  NCTM's 2005 Yearbook Editorial Panel extends an invitation
  to submit articles on the topic of "Technology-Supported
  Mathematics Learning Environments." 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.

  Lessons:
    - Do It by Functions
    - World Within a World
    - Shagadelic Patterns
    - Where Is the Golden Ratio?
    - Leaky Pyramid and Rubik's Cube
    - How Holey Is the Swiss Cheese?
    - Does God Play the Dice?
    - The Book of Numbers
    - How Does the Population Grow?
    - You Now Have Chaos
