Making Mathematics - EDC | Geometry of War
California Instructional Technology Clearinghouse

Mentored Research Projects for Young Mathematicians
Education Development Center, Inc.

The goal of Making Mathematics is to provide high school
students and teachers with the materials and mentorship
necessary for engaging in a mathematical research experience.

Prior to the start of research investigations, students are
paired with a mathematician who serves as their mentor. Via
regular email exchanges throughout the research process,
mentors serve as distance learning guides for both teachers
and students. Students gather data, investigate patterns,
form hypotheses, and analyze conjectures, sharing their
results with others and posing - and perhaps solving - new
questions inspired by this work.

Apply online later this fall; read introductions and program
descriptions available for students, teachers, mentors, and
parents; and see research projects, completed student work,
and more.


Museum of the History of Science, Oxford

From The Museum of the History of Science in Oxford, a
virtual version of an exhibition on the uses of geometry
in the art of warfare during the Renaissance.

The site includes summaries that list the instruments and
books in the exhibit and also provide a way into the
Catalogue, with its figures illustrating every object.
The summaries reflect the three main divisions of the
exhibition - Gunnery, Rangefinding and Surveying, and
Fortification - and also cover Troop Formations and the

The introductory essay from the printed catalogue is also
available in electronic form, as is the bibliography; a
Name Index offers a further means of navigating the
catalogue entries.

An educator's guide to instructional technology resources
that support California's curriculum frameworks and standards.
If an instructional program marketed to schools uses a
computer, a VCR or laserdisc player, a network, or the
Internet, or any combination of these, the Clearinghouse
will evaluate it for use in California schools.

Whether you live in California or elsewhere, you may access
this database of thousands of rated and annotated
recommendations, including hundreds of mathematics software
packages and other titles, to research and assess the
instructional technology of your choice. Specify keyword,
subject, technology, platform, language, grade level, or
content standard to search the database. Review criteria
may be read onsite.
