Math Awareness Month

April is Math Awareness Month. The goal of MAM is to increase public awareness and understanding of mathematics. The theme for MAM 2008 is Math and Voting. I am impressed with the theme chosen by The Joint Policy Board for Mathematics. (Past themes were really not of much interest to students.) This year they are having a contest in which you create a video about what math and voting means to you. The videos are being hosted at YouTube. You can win $500. I think this Web 2.0 theme is definitely something that is more appealing to today's students!
