Subject: Re: math club
Students in a mathematics club can really benefit from studying something about the history of mathematics and mathematicians. The Reimers have done an excellent job of creating bios of mathematicians that appeal to young students (grades 4-8) and activities that have short and long term applications. Dale Seymour Publications has a book named, "Mathematicians are people too". You can get a Dale Seymour catalog from 800-872-1100. There are other interesting titles as well. The Reimers have done three books for AIMS. These are the best, in my opinion. They give bios and few activities for each mathematician. You can get info on AIMS from their web site. Try http://184.108.40.206/AIMS.html As far as funding is concerned, it all depends on you school district or state. Good luck! -Judy K., for the Teacher2Teacher service
