[ Spotlighting | Minutes from ME | Puzzler | Thisday | BioPoint ]


volume four, issue four

April, 1998

For many, Springtime thoughts turn to baseball! Welcome the new season by trying ME's quick and easy baseball activities. "Minutes from ME" offers a series of ideas for using baseball in math class. Plus, use your computer's speadsheet and graphing software to extend the activity.

For some, Springtime thoughts turn to the top of the world! It's time again for the annual traffic jams on the "highway" to the summit of Mount Everest. Why does the world's highest peak hold such fascination for so many people? Even amateur mountain climbers can join an expedition and successfully stand on top of the world. This month's "Spotlight" features facts and figures about the mighty mountain.

For others, Springtime thoughts turn to dissection! In many high school biology labs across the country, students are lifting the scalpel and slicing open specimens. The "BioPoint" students share their own invasive procedures.

For fun, climb the highest mountain, if you can! First, you have to find the highest mountain, and the only way to do that is to solve the "Puzzler."
