The purpose of this grant is to create senior high classroom materials or lessons connecting mathematics to other fields. For 2007-2008, grants with a maximum of $3,000 each will be awarded to educators currently teaching mathematics in grades 9-12. Materials may be in the form of books, visual displays, computer programs or displays, slide shows, videotapes, or other appropriate medium. The focus of these materials should be on showing the connectivity of mathematics to other fields or to the world around us. Any acquisition of equipment must support the proposed plan but not be the primary focus of the grant. Any published sources must be documented. Entries will be judged on the following criteria: clarity of plans for developing and evaluating materials, overall creativity of planned materials and their connectivity to other fields or disciplines, and anticipated impact on students’ learning.
