The Math Forum originally began before the advent of the first web browser, as an online discussion space of usenet newsgroups and mailing lists. From an early focus on geometry, the discussions grew to encompass other math topics, research projects, workshops, institutes, and professional state associations of math teachers. Twenty-five years later, hundreds of thousands of you have contributed several million messages.
The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is ready for blast-off!
First featured here on its debut and now launching into its 16th year, TARC inspires thousands of students annually through the designing, building, and flying of model rockets.
This year's criteria: Build a model rocket that carries two raw hen eggs to an altitude of 800 feet, stays airborne for between 41 and 43 seconds, and returns to the ground with all rocket sections still connected together.
