The Scout Report: Research and Education

The good folks at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) keep on turning out engaging and interactive mathematics resources, and this latest release follows in that admirable path.

The MinuteMath feature brings together a host of problems from the MAA's American Mathematics Competitions, and these playful problems can be used in a variety of settings, including the classroom or a good-spirited mathematics get-together outside the classroom walls.

Computing Life: National Institute of General Medical Sciences

Computers are embedded in much of what we do, whether it's a form of instant communication or the navigation of city streets via a GPS unit. Computers have also proved to be extremely useful to scientific researchers, a fact not lost on the people at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).
The NIGMS has created this virtual online booklet titled "Computing Life" in order to inform young people about the various scientific and medical careers that are open to them and to educate people more generally about the role of computers in scientific inquiry and discovery.
