Introduction

Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability

Number Theory and Algebra

Geometrical Concepts from Constructions, Models, and Investigations

Making Mathematics Meaningful

Japanese Lesson Study

Physics in the Mathematics Curriculum

Internet Committee

This group will develop 1-3 lessons that use the statistical software FATHOM as a tool for understanding the mathematics and the application of that mathematics in contexts that require data analysis and statistical concepts. The goal is to write lessons of outstanding caliber, having deep mathematical content but also accessible at lower levels. It is hoped that variations of these activities will be used from beginning algebra to AP Statistics. The work of summer 2001 will be field-tested by the group participants in their classrooms during the 2001-2002 school year. In the summer of 2002, the project will be critiqued and fine-tuned for wide spread dissemination.
