|Revisiting the intent of Felix Klein's Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint on the centenary of its publication, this IMU/ICMI-commissioned project aims to produce a book for upper secondary teachers that communicates the breadth and vitality of the research discipline of mathematics and connects it to the senior secondary school curriculum. Supplemented by web, print, and DVD, and translated into more than ten languages, the 300-page book will "inspire teachers to present to their students a more informed picture of the growing and interconnected field represented by the mathematical sciences in today's world." Klein vignettes include "Heron Triangles and Elliptic Curves"; "Calculators, Power Series and Chebyshev Polynomials"; "How Google Works": "Banach Fixed Point Theorem and Applications"; "Kepler's Conjecture on the Packing of Spheres"; "Higher Dimensions"; and "Tandem Rigging for Rowing Eights and Fours."
