FEATURED INTERNET RESOURCE: MATH LESSONS by SUSAN BOONE

http://www.cs.rice.edu/~sboone/Lessons/lptitle.html

Under the auspices of GirlTECH, like Cynthia Lanius
(last week's featured writer) SUSAN BOONE has written
a series of math lessons that require research on the
Internet such as reviewing census data or searching
for local housing prices.

Using information they find on the Internet, students
derive equations, create graphs, and make predictions
about future trends. Sample Topics:

A Functional Housing Market
The Internet Pizza Server
Pop Clock
INDY 500
Houston Area Real-Time Traffic Report

NEW SOFTWARE FOR DISCUSSIONS AND ARCHIVES

Providing places for public discussion of matters of
concern to the mathematics community is an important
part of the Math Forum's goal of building a center for
all who have an interest in math education.

To archive these discussions, we've created new software
with list-specific searching built in. Archives of a
number of math newsgroups and mailing lists are accessible
from our site. Here are a few of the most active:

k12.ed.math
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/epigone/k12.ed.math/

math-history-list
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/epigone/math-history-list/

nctm-l

AFRICAN AMERICAN MATHEMATICIANS

On November 7, Mrs. J. Dean wrote to Dr. Math:

I am trying to compile a list of African American
mathematicians. Do you have any suggestions or
Internet URLs where I can find some info? Thanks.

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

Dr. Math did some Web research and sent Mrs. Dean a partial
answer, now stored in our Ask Dr. Math archive:

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/dr.math/problems/dean11.7.96.html


We've also added the National Association of Mathematicians
(NAM) to our Web page on Minorities and Mathematics:

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


We think that you can help us add to and broaden the Web
resources available on minorities and mathematics, and
we'd welcome comments and feedback. Please write to
