MARTIN GARDNER, 1914-2010

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/24/us/24gardner.html

Martin Gardner, world-renowned puzzle creator and polymath,
died Saturday, May 22.

Members of the mathematics community have posted to online
discussions with notices, as well as remembrances, including
one with puzzle links:

WALTER RUDIN, 1921-2010

http://www.math.wisc.edu/oldhome/news/WRudinObit.html

Walter Rudin, mathematics professor at the University of
Wisconsin-Madison for over 30 years and author of several
widely adopted mathematics texts (Principles of Mathematical
Analysis, Real and Complex Analysis, and Functional Analysis),
died Thursday, May 20.

His death elicited numerous personal reflections:

MATH FORUM ONLINE COURSES: SUMMER SCHEDULE

http://mathforum.org/pd/

Differentiated Math Instruction:
Using Rich Problems to Reach All Learners
June 17 - July 28
http://mathforum.org/pd/rich/

Participants will explore strategies for using problem solving
to build skills and concepts for struggling students and to
provide challenge for those who soar. Participants should
expect to spend 3-5 hrs per week on the course. This course is
best suited for teachers of grades 3-8.

The pricing special above applies to this course. This course
requires membership in the PoWs at the Class level or higher.

\|/

Problem Solving Strategies
June 21 - August 30
http://mathforum.org/pd/problemsolving/

Participants will solve challenging middle school and high
school algebra, geometry, and probability problems and develop
a supplemental curriculum outline supporting the development of
mathematical approaches to problems.

Course participants include both graduate students from the
Mathematics Learning and Teaching master's program (taking it
for graduate credit) and teachers from the wider Math Forum
community (taking it for continuing education credits). This
should provide a nice sized group for interaction, along with
useful variety in mathematical approaches and teaching
experience.

This is a longer course than our others, and carries 3 CEUs or
30 hours, vs. the regular 1.5 CEUs or 15 hours, all for the
same regular price of $149--or purchase or renew a class-level
membership in the Problems of the Week, and take this course
for only $70.
