Business Statistics: Revealing Facts from Figures

Dr. Hossein Arsham, Professor of Management Science and Statistics at the University of Baltimore, developed this Business Statistics site for his MBA course. The site contains a description the objectives of the course and a review of computer packages for statistical analysis. The main thrust of the site is to explain various topics in statistical analysis such as the linear model, hypothesis...
Math Magic

Math Forum (formerly from Swarthmore College, discussed in the October 20, 1995 issue of The Scout Report) hosts this website of materials from the MathMagic K-12 telecommunications project developed in El Paso, Texas by Alan A. Hodson. The project aims to "provide motivation for students to use computer technology while increasing problem-solving strategies and communications skills." Materials...
Dave's Short Trig Course

This resource, provided by Professor David Joyce of Clark University, is an excellent examples of how Java can be used to explain basic principles of geometry and trigonometry. A Short Course in Trigonometry is divided into thirteen sections, accompanied by instructive Java applets and selected answered exercises. Professor Joyce shows a wonderful ability to simplify complex concepts and demystify...
Exactly How Is Math Used In Technology?

The Mathematics Department at the British Columbia Institute of Technology succeeds in demonstrating the usefulness of mathematics in our lives through examples detailed at this site. The examples are divided into eight different mathematical categories and seventeen technological fields, including civil and structural engineering, mining technology, and surveying. Not all math categories are...
Princeton University: Annals of Mathematics

The Annals of Mathematics is a bimonthly publication, which is "intended to serve the mathematical community." Originally, founded in 1884 by Ormond Stone of the University of Virginia, and later published by Harvard University, the Annals are now published by Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study. The website provides information for authors, including submission guidelines...
Call for Papers: The Morehead Electronic Journal of Applications in Mathematics (MEJAM)

The Morehead Electronic Journal of Applications in Mathematics (MEJAM), sponsored by Morehead State University, is a free interdisciplinary journal that publishes the work of undergraduates. This forum provides an excellent place for undergraduates to get a taste of publishing in an academic, refereed environment. MEJAM is currently accepting submissions for its next issue.
Crop Values

While economic data on crop values are strictly commercial/ agricultural summaries, they can be useful as surrogate indices of land use/ cover change, or in estimating food subsidies (e.g. waste grain) for wildlife. Posted by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economics and Statistics System at Cornell University, the site contains the "annual marketing year average prices and value of...
JOMA: Journal of Online Mathematics and Its Applications

Published by the Mathematical Association of America, this online journal aims to advance the mathematical sciences, especially at the college level, by promoting effective teaching, fostering scholarship, and "making modern tools, curricula, and active learning environments more accessible to students and teachers everywhere." Offerings in the inaugural issue include the first in a regular series...
Combinatorial Structures

This site is the online material for Colorado University-Denver's course Math 6406, Combinatorial Structures. The information found here should be helpful to both students and professors of combinatorics. Thorough lecture notes, with references, cover topics such as Latin squares, Hadamard matrices, finite fields and geometries, coding theory, and block design. The class handout "A Short Course in...
From Stargazers to Starships

The International Solar-Terrestrial Physics Science Initiative (ISTP), a collaborative effort by NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS) of Japan, has recently created this new resource for use in physics and astronomy courses or by other interested users. A sister site to its popular Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere site...
