This document consists of the two issues of the "AMATYC Review" published during volume year 1997-1998. 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, and regularly presents book and software reviews, descriptions of classroom activities, instructor experiences, and math problems. The first of two issues of volume 19 includes the following major articles: "An Introduction to Computer Algebra" (Philip Mahler); "Dust Particles and Rain" (Carroll Brandy, Ricardo Torrejon, and Stewart Welsh); "Exploring Directional Derivatives on the TI-82/83 Calculator" (Thomas Shilgalis); "A Unique Isosceles Triangle" (Michael Scott McClendon); "The Distribution of Zeros of a Complex Polynomial" (Jay M. Jahangiri and Herb Silverman); "From Divisibility By 6 to the Euclidean Algorithm and the RSA Cryptographic Method" (John Cosgrave); and "Obstacles for College Algebra Students in Understanding Functions" (Marilyn P. Carlson). The second issue contains the following major articles: "Personal Financial Planning" (Martin Vern Bonsangue and Maijian Qian); "On Periodic Alignment" (Paul O'Meara); "On a Simple Exercise in Linear Algebra" (T.W. Leung); "A Note on f(x) f(n)(x)=0" (Russell Euler and Jawad Sadek); "A Construction of the Harmonic Sequence" (Dennis Gittinger); "Towards a New Precalculus" (Mako Haruta, Mark Turpin, and Ray McGivney); "Exploring Parametric Calculus and Elliptic Integrals with Real-World Data" (Christopher Brueningsen and Rebecca A. Stoudt); and "Why Use Radians in Calculus" (Carl E. Crockett, Lt. Col.). (YKH)
