THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS


FEATURED INTERNET RESOURCE: MAA ONLINE - TEACHING & LEARNING

http://www.maa.org/t_and_l/

The MAA Teaching and Learning Web pages are designed to
provide useful and thoughtful articles about teaching
mathematics.

- John and Annie Selden's Research Sampler column is called
"Of What Does Mathematical Knowledge Consist?" It begins
with the deliberations of the Summer 1995 ICME-8 Working
Group on Forms of Mathematical Knowing and continues on
from there. The column will appear every three months.

- The Innovative Teaching Exchange, edited by Bonnie Gold,
is a forum for people teaching mathematics at the
college level to share new methods they have tried,
invented, or discovered. Interested teachers are
invited to contribute.

FROM THE E-MAILBAG

Can you tell me where on the Internet I can find
math formulas and information for my son?

Here's a great resource for you: ERIC'S TREASURE TROVE
OF MATHEMATICS, a comprehensive alphabetical online
encyclopedia of math terms, equations, and derivations.

http://www.astro.virginia.edu/~eww6n/math/math.html

Organized alphabetically, its cross-referenced factoids
come fully equipped with explanations, examples,
references and more. You'll find everything from the
Abacus and the abc Conjecture to the Zsigmondy Theorem.
