COUNTDOWN TO THE GAMES

http://sport.maths.org/content/resources

To celebrate London 2012, the Millennium Mathematics Project at
the University of Cambridge has developed free online
mathematical resources exploring maths and science through the
Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Many of the student activities sport accompanying
teachers' notes.

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"So, for those who did not receive any of these three proofs
and who would find such refreshing to read during summertime,
then let me know which [you] would like to read and have as a
Word file and I'll forward such to you."

GEOGEBRA APPLETS BY ANTONIJA HORVATEK

http://www.antonija-horvatek.from.hr/applets/math-applets.htm

Antonija Horvatek has recently translated some of her GeoGebra
applets into English:

- coloring the fractional part of the figure
- express the colored part by using a fraction
- mixed numbers
- a fractional part of a group
- decimal numbers on the number line
- multiply decimal numbers by 10, 100, 1000 etc.
- divide decimal numbers by 10, 100, 1000 etc.
- convert length and area units
- transversal
- angles with parallel lines and angles with
perpendicular lines
- triangle area
- square root spiral
- square roots on a number line
- the 25 squares game

Horvatek, who teaches math in Croatia, continues to share these
and other resources through the
geometry.software.dynamic newsgroup:

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"It sounds like a plan to exclude students rather than include
them in a math course that is and should be very inclusive."

The Americas Section of History and Pedagogy of Mathematics
(HPM) recently announced its West Coast meeting, set for
October 26-28, 2012, on the campus of University of
California, Berkeley.

HPM seek a variety of talks on the relation between the history
and pedagogy of mathematics. Talks directly relevant to the use
of the history of mathematics in mathematics classrooms are
especially welcome, as are reports of studies relating history
and pedagogy.

Send the title and abstract of your talk proposal, along with
contact information, to Kathy Clark by
e-mailing drkclark@gmail.com

Special features of this meeting include a rare book exhibit and
a visit to the Lawrence Hall of Science.
