MATHMOL - K-12 MATHEMATICS AND MOLECULES

http://www.nyu.edu/pages/mathmol/

Molecular Modeling is one of the fastest-growing fields in
science. It may vary from building and visualizing molecules
to performing complex calculations on molecular systems.
Using molecular modeling, scientists will be better able to
design new and more potent drugs against diseases such as
cancer, AIDS, and arthritis, and to produce new materials
for the optics, ceramic, semiconductor and biomaterials
markets.

MathMol is designed to serve as a starting point for K-12
students and teachers interested in the field of molecular
modeling and its application to mathematics. Mathmol's
K-12 Page features online interactive activities for
students and teachers:

- Libraries of 3-D Geometric and Molecular Structures
- Concepts in Science through Molecular Modeling
conic sections
geometric figures
linear equations
periodic functions
symmetry
- Hypermedia Textbooks for Grades 3-5 and 6-12
- Water Module for K-12 Students
- Careers of the Future

MathMol is being developed at the
NYU/ACF Scientific Visualization Laboratory

ABILITY GROUPING IN MATH CLASSES

Is there research on the pros and cons of ability
grouping in math? I would like to hear what others
have to say. - Jeanne Day

Hi Jeanne,

We invite you to check the Web for existing discussions,
articles, and materials relating to math grouping. For
starters, there have been two relevant discussions on the
geometry.pre-college newsgroup. You can find them by
doing a search on the keyword "grouping" (just the word,
not the quotes) in the Forum's newsgroup searcher:

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/newsgrepform.html

In addition to searching, you can browse our collection
of what we think are some of the best resources on this
topic:

GROUPING STUDENTS IN MATH CLASSES
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/mathed/math.grouping.html


We also suggest you post your message on a newsgroup or
mailing list inhabited by other teachers talking and
thinking about math education. NCTM-L might be a good
place to begin. For information on math and mathed
discussions hosted by the Math Forum and others see:
