Family Math

A program developed by EQUALS, at the Lawrence Hall of Science, University of
California, Berkeley, California. The goal of FAMILY MATH is to encourage underrepresented groups (especially girls and minority students) to enter careers that use mathematics. FAMILY MATH is, of course, family-based.

Image Processing in Mathematics

The goal of the METIP project is to use digital image processing to help meet these objectives. In particular, we have developed a series of applications designed to allow students to manipulate digitized images of their choice. These materials are intended to be used in enrichment activities rather than part of a standard classroom curriculum. Teachers can play various roles with these activities; for example, they can catalyze student learning by leading discussions of the concepts students have explored on the computer.

Geometry Resources

We believe that the World Wide Web opens interesting possibilities for educational materials in the way that it combines hypertext, interaction, multi-media, and communication at a distance, particularly since users can construct their own Web contributions. The Forum is committed to being a resource which is built upon the
activity of the teachers, students, and researchers who use it.

Mathematics and Molecules

Molecular Modeling, is one of the fastest growing fields in science. It may vary from building and visualizing molecules to performing complex calculations on molecular systems.

Ask Dr. Math

In fall of 1994 we discovered a dormant project called "Ask Prof. Maths," where K12 students could send math questions to 'experts' and get personal answers. We decided to revive the program, using Swarthmore College math students as 'Math Doctors' -- around here we call them the 'Swat Team' -- students who love to answer questions from other students.

Math Magic

MathMagic is a K-12 telecommunications project developed in El Paso, Texas. It provides strong motivation for students to use computer technology while increasing problem-solving strategies and communications skills. MathMagic posts challenges in each of four categories (k-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12) to trigger each registered team to pair up with another team and engage in a problem-solving dialog. When an agreement has been reached, one solution is posted for every pair.

Assocation of Teachers of Mathematics
. The Association of Teachers of Mathematics aims to relate mathematical education more closely to the powers and needs of the learner. The Association was formed in 1950 and has about 4000 members, mainly teachers in primary and secondary schools.

Calculus&Mathematica Distance Education Program

The Calculus&Mathematica Distance Education Program (C&M DEP) runs on the electronic highway to bring top rural and inner city high school students to the university and to send top university undergraduates to rural and inner city high schools to form a human, electronic community devoted to mathematics learning.
