THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS


FINDING MATH HISTORY ON THE WEB


Who was Hypatia?
How did the Babylonians and Egyptians use fractions?
What was Fermat's Last Theorem?
When did the quantum age begin?
What is Ada Byron Lovelace famous for?


The Math Forum Internet Resource Collection provides
a page of Internet MATH HISTORY sites at

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/~steve/steve/mathhistory.html

Here you'll find everything from ANCIENT MATHEMATICS
(with links to materials at the Vatican and in the
U.S. Library of Congress) to WOMEN MATHEMATICIANS,
(biographies written by students at Agnes Scott College).

There are so many good sites, however, that it can take
a long time to find just what you're looking for.

We recommend that for general history, chronologies,
and biographies of mathematicians, you begin with the
searchable MACTUTOR HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS ARCHIVE
from St. Andrews, Scotland - don't miss the articles
in their History Topics Index:

http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk:80/~history/
http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk:80/~history/HistoryTopics.html

Or, for Web resources, regional math, history by
subject, books, and chronologies and timelines, try
the HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS site maintained by
David Joyce of Clark University:

http://aleph0.clarku.edu/~djoyce/mathhist/mathhist.html

INTERNET MATH BY TOPIC

As math resources on the Internet continue to expand,
the Math Forum has added new categories for classifying
sites. The full list of MATHEMATICS ON THE INTERNET
BY TOPIC - from Arithmetic, Algebra, and Geometry to
Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations or
Fourier Analysis and Wavelets - with links to
exhaustive lists of resources for each topic, can
be found at:

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/~steve/steve/mathtopics.html


We also offer SELECTED MATH RESOURCES BY SUBJECT, a
subset that includes only the resources we consider to
be the best:

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/math.topics.html

Choose OTHER ADVANCED MATH to find collections
assembled by AMS and SIAM or to try the Forum search
tools.

THIRD INTERNATIONAL MATHEMATICS
AND SCIENCE STUDY (TIMSS)

The goal of this study is to assess school achievement
in mathematics and science in nearly 50 countries.
Designed to provide a comparative assessment of
international educational achievement to date, it
studies student outcomes, instructional practices,
curricula, and cultural context.

Don't miss The TIMSS Videotape Classroom Study, a video
survey of eighth-grade mathematics lessons in Germany,
Japan, and the United States:

http://www.ed.gov/NCES/timss/video/index.html

We invite you to participate in a discussion area the
Math Forum has recently begun hosting for this
classroom study project:

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/epigone/vstudy

TIMSS is a project of the National Center for Education
Statistics (NCES), the primary federal entity for
collecting and analyzing data related to education in
the United States and other nations. For comprehensive
