October/November 2012 MAA FOCUS


MAA FOCUS is the newsmagazine of the MAA. It contains information about MAA activities, news about mathematics and the mathematical community, and lively articles about interesting new (or sometimes not so new) ideas in mathematics, mathematics education, and related areas. It is published six times a year and is received by all members of the MAA.

Highlights from the October/November 2012 Issue

The AWARDS Project: Promoting Good Practices in Award Selection

Reflections on Mathematics and Democracy

NSF Research Fellowship Encourages Applications for Mathematics Research


A production error caused the disappearance of the last two lines of the story about William G. McCallum winning the Mary P. Dolciani Award (page 2) in the October/November MAA FOCUS. Here is the missing text:

"At the college level, he [McCallum] has been a forceful advocate for the calculus reform effort and is the lead author of the Harvard Calculus Consortium's multivariable calculus book."

We apologize for the mistake. The online version is being corrected.
