 GirlTECH  Cynthia Lanius; Center for Research on Parallel Computation (CRPC)
GirlTECH was a teacher training and student council program that encouraged young women to pursue careers in mathematics and science, offering intensive technology training to explore innovative teaching strategies for gender equity in the classroom through a training period at The Rice School and Rice University in Houston, Texas. GirlTECH lesson plans were designed by participating teachers to take full advantage of Internet resources and teach standard concepts in mathematics and sciences in new and exciting ways. The site includes lessons and Internet projects from 19952006.

 Internet Lessons  Susan Boone; GirlTECH '95, CRPC, RUSMP
Lessons with an Internet component, developed for GirlTECH'95, a program funded by CRPC Rice University and the RUSMP. A Functional Housing Market asks students to search the Internet for housing prices and compare them to the area of a house, thus deriving a linear equation. The Internet Pizza Server lets students order pizzas, calculating their area and determine the better buy. With Pop Clock, students look at the census site, study data and make predictions on future populations. Find the mean and median speeds for racers in the INDY 500. Study rates and speeds by using the RealTime Traffic Report.

 Secondary Math Units  Margaret Sinclair
Units for grades 912. For grades 910: Data Collecting in the Classroom, Algebraic Problemsolving using Spreadsheets (a unit that emphasizes moving from numerical to symbolic representation), and a newspaper review unit on the Skydome. For grades 1112: Three Days in the Lab (Sketchpad assignments for seniors when lab time is short); Linear Transformations using Spreadsheets; Show and Tell for Big Kids (investigating math using computers when you have limited lab time); and Investigating Functions Using Spreadsheets (with an emphasis on Microsoft Excel).

 This is MegaMathematics! (MegaMath)  Nancy Casey; Los Alamos National Laboratory
The frontier of mathematics is an exciting place, where mathematicians experiment and play with creative and imaginative ideas, many of them accessible to young children; others (infinity is a good example) whose profound mathematical importance is not widely known or understood. MegaMath is a project of the Computer Research and Applications Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory intended to bring unusual and important mathematical ideas to elementary school classrooms so that young people and their teachers can think about them together.
