MAA signs letter in support of science funding

MAA president Ann Watkins and Executive Director Tina Straley were part of a long list of leaders of scientific societies signing a letter to Congress in support of science funding. The letter, prepared by the Coalition for National Science Funding, argues that strengthening the funding for the National Science Foundation is one of the best ways to spur the growth of the economy and also contributes to preventing and combating terrorism, and therefore deserves a prominent spot in the budget for fiscal year 2003.

Web-based Resources for Teaching Probability and Statistics

The Probability and Statistics Object Library is an NSF-supported virtual library of web-based "objects" for teachers and students of probability and statistics. The "objects" are either standalone applets or components that can be used to build other applets and embedded into other components. The components are written in Java and are organized into "packages" according to their type. All objects (including the source code) are freely available for use, modification, and re-distribution under the terms of the General Public License.
