NEW from the Forum - send us your student projects!

We know a lot of you are doing exciting math! We'd like
to see what you're up to and we'll give you a chance to
share it with the rest of the world. Here's your first
BIG project:

WORLD'S LARGEST ICOSAHEDRON

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/students/showcase/largest.icosa/

The amazing saga of how 7 students in Lexington,
Massachusetts went about building a 15-foot tall
icosahedron.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR STUDENT PROJECT

Include a detailed description and photos
- or better yet -

VISUAL CALCULUS

http://archives.math.utk.edu/visual.calculus

Visual Calculus is a collection of notes, primarily for
the instructor, that give some ideas for how technology -
in particular computers - can be used in the teaching
of calculus.

TOPICS include:

Pre-Calculus
Limits and Continuity
Derivatives
Applications of Differentiation
Integration
Applications of Integration
Sequences and Series

You'll find all your favorite equations with graphs and
tables that illustrate their solutions, and detailed
instructions for using a variety of public domain,
shareware, and commercial software packages. An
appendix provides a series of tables showing the
software programs used with each topic.

FROM THE EMAILBAG - MINORITIES AND MATH

I'm an initially certified teacher of High School
Mathematics. I have been trying to find some
information on minority contributions to mathematics
and came across your page. I think it is a very good
resource; however, I believe that it is important
for us (as public school teachers) to have the
resources and knowledge to be able to give our
students examples of people like themselves who have
succeeded and made relevant contributions to fields
like math, science, and engineering. For that reason,
I have been searching for information on minority
contributions to math. I would be pleased if you
could add some biographical histories of minority
mathematicians...
- Tracy Poche'

Thanks for your question, Tracy. We've just made a
start in this area, looking for what's on the Web and
collecting some of the best resources at

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/social/math.minorities.html

.::. .::. .::.

Kristin Lockwood has put together an annotated bibliography
of resources for mathematics teachers and others interested
in how language may affect the thought, achievement and
assessment of students of limited English proficiency, as
well as these students' access to knowledge and education.

WE'D LIKE YOUR HELP in finding more information to add
to our materials on minorities and mathematics. Maybe
we can give you hand with putting something you've
written on the Web. Send your website suggestions or
other materials to
