The MAA-NCTM Task Force on competitions would like to hear from
recipientsin this network with regard to two matters. We are
discussing the possible development of a database of public and secure
problems for use by teachers and students in preparing for competitions
and for the competitions themselves. We especially invite teachers, both
college and pre-college, who would use such a service. Ideas for keeping
problems secure...timing, use of snailmail vs. email, types of problems,
level of difficulty, problems for indivdual vs. for a team of students
are all things to be resolved.
We are also concerned about the participation of females and minority
students in competitions. If you have been successful at attracting
members of either group to participate, we'd like to hear from you.
Members of the Task Force are Curt Boddie, Ben Fusaro, Susan Gardenhire,
Pat Hopfensberger, Don Kreider, Carole Lacampaygne, Jack Price,
Harold Reiter, Joanna Schot, Peter Shor, Glen Smith, and Tom Tucker.
