Math in the Media http://www.ams.org/mathmedia/ This section of the AMS site includes: - Tony Phillips' Take on Math in the Media, a monthly survey of math news - Math Digest, short summaries of articles about mathematics in the popular press - Reviews of books, plays, and films about mathematics Feature Column http://www.ams.org/featurecolumn/ The two most recent columns, Parts I and II of "Voting Games," look at what goes on in complex voting situations. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- WOMEN OF NASA http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/women/intro.html The Women of NASA resource was developed to encourage more young women to pursue careers in math, science, and technology. Throughout history, women have made valuable contributions to these fields. Although these disciplines are still dominated by men, and these women are seen as exceptions, there is a growing appreciation of cultural and gender diversity in the workplace. The Women of NASA interactive project showcases outstanding women who are enjoying successful careers and demonstrates how these women balance personal and professional responsibilities. The main components of the project are the interactive events which include live chats, forums, and webcasts and offer participants the opportunity to dialogue with the featured mentor. You will also find the profiles and archived events a rich source of information on the NASA women and their work. Areas of the site include: - Profiles - Interactive Events - Spanish (Bilingual Women of NASA) - Teaching Tips - Archive -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- MATHLIBS.ORG http://www.mathlibs.org Fill in the blanks for names and numbers of things, in the style of Mad Libs, to make your own arithmetic word problems. These Shockwave activities also check your answers for you. "Fun Stuff" includes explorations of fractions, probability, and rotations.
