Mathematics Projects Handbook.
Hess, Adrien L.
This handbook is designed as a guide for teachers and students in choosing and developing mathematics projects, from simple demonstrations of mathematical problems or principles that the teacher has assigned as classroom learning experiences to complex, sophisticated exhibits, intended for entrance in fairs and competitions. The use of projects to arouse interest in mathematics has been slow to materialize in this country, in spite of the growth of science fairs and renewed emphasis in mathematics since World War II. Presented are directions on developing a mathematics project, and titles of projects that have been displayed in the past, ideas for reports and projects, leading questions, unsolved problems, and outlines of general topics suitable at the high school and junior high school levels. In addition, the text contains an annotated bibliography of mathematics books and periodicals and provides the names and addresses of mathematics-oriented publishers and periodicals. (MP)
