Historia-Matematica (29 June 1998)
A new unmoderated, closed mailing list created to provide a virtual forum for scholarly discussion of the history of mathematics among professionals and non-professionals with a serious interest in the field. English, Portuguese, and Spanish are the official languages of the list, and others are welcome. A searchable archive is hosted by the Forum. For more information, see About this discussion.

Corner for Interactive Geometry Software (CIGS) (7 June 1998)
The Math Forum's main area for resources in support of teaching with dynamic, interactive geometry software such as Cabri Geometry and the Geometer's Sketchpad. Pages include instructional activities and lessons to read on the Web; sketches to study and/or download; a place for questions or conversations on the discussion group geometry-software-dynamic; links to sources of information and downloads of software; and help with configuring your browser and other questions you may have.

Maximizing Area and Perimeter - David Purdy (6 June 1998)
Common in calculus and advanced algebra texts, these well-known optimization problems now appear in several high school geometry texts as interesting explorations that integrate measurement, model building, polynomial functions, and use of the graphing calculator. Sketches to download from this page provide another facet through which to view and explore this kind of problem dynamically.

MATEMATICA archive (1 June 1998)
The Forum now provides a searchable archive of messages sent to MATEMATICA, the Spanish math pedagogy mailing list (formerly PROMAT). To read about the list, see About this discussion.
