  The American Mathematical Society's Mathematical Moments is
  a series of illustrated "snapshots" designed to promote
  appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays
  in science, nature, technology, and human culture.

  Since we last featured Mathematical Moments, the AMS has
  added eight new topics:

    - Recognizing Speech
    - Being a Better Sport
    - Targeting Tumors
    - Locating, Locating, Locating
    - Canning Spam
    - Seeing More Clearly
    - Unlocking the Cell
    - Tracing Your Routes

  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.
