AMATYC Review, v14 n1-2 Fall 1992-Spr 1993

Designed as an avenue of communication for mathematics educators concerned with the views, ideas, and experiences of two-year college students and teachers, this journal contains articles on mathematics exposition and education, as well as regular features presenting book and software reviews and math problems. The first of two issues of volume 14 contains the following major articles: "Technology in the Mathematics Classroom," by Mike Davidson; "Reflections on Arithmetic-Progression Factorials," by William E. Rosenthal; "The Investigation of Tangent Polynomials with a Computer Algebra System," by John H. Mathews and Russell W. Howell; "On Finding the General Term of a Sequence Using Lagrange Interpolation," by Sheldon Gordon and Robert Decker; "The Floating Leaf Problem," by Richard L. Francis; "Approximations to the Hypergeometric Distribution," by Chitra Gunawardena and K. L. D. Gunawardena; and "Generating 'JE(3)' with Some Elementary Applications," by John J. Edgell, Jr. The second issue contains: "Strategies for Making Mathematics Work for Minorities," by Beverly J. Anderson; "Two-Year Mathematics Pioneers," an interview with Allyn J. Washington; "Using Linear Programming To Obtain a Minimum Cost Balanced Organic Fertilizer Mix," by Stephen J. Turner; "Problems Whose Solutions Lie on a Hyperbola," by Steven Schwartzman; and "The Shape of a Projectile's Path: Explorations with a Computer Algebra System," by John H. Mathews and Robert Lopez.
