27 September 2004 Vol. 9, No. 39 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS The New MathDL | Problem Bank | Math Challenge THE NEW MATHDL http://www.mathdl.org/ The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) has recently unveiled the new site for the Mathematical Sciences Digital Library (MathDL). It features a fresh look that includes: - JOMA, the Journal of Online Mathematics and its Applications - DCR, Digital Classroom Resources - Convergence, an online magazine devoted to the use of the history of mathematics in teaching mathematics The next component of MathDL to come online soon will be Open Source Mathlets (OSLETS). OSLETS will feature interactive online materials that are scientifically and pedagogically sound and that can be easily reused/repurposed using JavaScript and HTML forms. In addition, many of these materials produce output ready to copy and paste into a spreadsheet or computer algebra system. The prototype OSLETS, called Lite Applets, were designed by a group headed by Frank Wattenberg and funded by a supplement to the MathDL grant. MathDL, one of the first collections in the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), has been developed with the support of a grant from the National Science Foundation. The Math Forum @ Drexel carried out the initial software development and had hosted the site until now. The current site is hosted and maintained by the MAA. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PROBLEM BANK http://www.acumedia.co.uk/problembank/ Simon Dakeyne hosts a central base of math problems created by teachers. He welcomes submissions of more problems. Read the problems on the Web; download them and their solutions as MS Word documents. If you prefer to browse the problems rather than use a searchable database structure, view Dakeyne's original site: 1000 PROBLEMS TO ENJOY http://www.1000problems.com/ The problems are presented under the categories: - Number - Algebra - Shape and Space - Statistics -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATH CHALLENGE - WWW.WHITEHOUSEKIDS.GOV http://www.whitehouse.gov/kids/math/ The "kids" area of The White House site includes a Math Challenge that started August 30, 2004. A new challenge is posted each Monday for students in: - Elementary School - Middle School - High School Also available are links to: - Open Challenge - Past Problems Archive -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/discussions/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors Donations http://deptapp.drexel.edu/ia/GOL/giftsonline1_MF.asp Ask Dr. Math Books http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
