The American Mathematical Society publishes Mathematical Moments, a series of posters (accompanied with MP3 files, podcasts, and web links) that capture the role of mathematics in science, nature, technology, and human culture. Covering topics such as Bending it Like Bernoulli to Sailing Faster, it is not surprising that most of approximately 100 entries invoke spatial (as well as mathematical) reasoning.
Envisioning a National Geospatial Technology Resource Center
The primary goal of this project was to develop a vision and plan for a national geospatial technology resource center in order to facilitate the development of curriculum, network technical expertise, and serve as a clearinghouse for products and services that will meet the needs of students, educators, government, business, and industry across a wide spectrum of disciplines. This project formed a steering committee of leaders in geospatial education to research issues critical to industry and education. These issues included: workforce needs, geospatial core competencies, certification, curriculum, pedagogy, educational pathways (including articulation and internships), professional development, communication, geospatial awareness and diversity, globalization and regionalize, future trends, and the qualities of a successful ATE Center.
TeachingWithData.org is a compository of materials for teaching quantative social sciences. Their listing contains resources for anthropology, economics, environmental science, geography, history, political science, and sociology, among others. Lecture materials and laboratory activities are provided for K-12, undergraduate, and graduate classrooms.
www.MapAspects.org is a good resource for tutorials and lesson plans created by Nico Tripcevich of the Archaeological Research Facility at UC Berkeley. It also features some of Dr. Tripcevich’s research.
