and journalism before "finding her subject" in her second
career as a writer. Her subjects included David Hilbert,
Richard Courant, Jerzy Neyman, E.T. Bell, and her sister,
Julia Robinson.

Service, Teaching, and Research (STaR). All those with a
doctorate in mathematics education, in their first or second
year as a higher education faculty member (mathematics
department or college/school of education) are eligible to
participate.

The workshop will be held July 17-22, 2011 in conjunction with
the Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI) in Park City, UT.
Application information is available at the link above.

The application deadline is December 1, 2010. If you have
questions, contact Robert Reys, University of Missouri, at
reysr@missouri.edu.
