Encyclopedia

Seymour, D., Encyclopedia of mathematical topics and references,

Dale Seymour Publ., 1994.

This is designed for students in search of a projects.

Encyclopedic Dictionary of Mathematics, MIT Press, 1987. 2nd (paperback

now available in 2 volumes),

This is an excellent collection of articles written by Japanese

mathematicians. It essentially covers the main areas of

what might be called "mainstream mathematics" where Japanese

mathematicians have made contributions. If you look for

fractals, you won't find it. However, in that general area,

Shishikura has made important contributions at the cutting

edge. Most of the topics are too advanced for 12-th graders.

However, it does provide a place where one can point to the

links to most of the frontiers.
