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.
