Title: Convergence
Url: http://mathdl.maa.org/mathDL/46/
Publisher: Mathematical Association of America
Description: Some math teachers find themselves confronted by students who ask, "Why do we have to learn this?" or "When am I going to use it?" These are vexing questions for sure, and one suggestion might be to incorporate the history and development of the field of mathematics into the formal study of the subject. That is exactly what a dedicated team of individuals at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics decided to do when they created the online magazine, Convergence. The magazine contains a wide range of materials for educators, including animated mathematical demonstrations that can be downloaded for classroom use and discussions of particular problems from an historical context. On the magazine's homepage, visitors can view featured articles, take a look over the "Critic's Corner", and use the "Show Me" search engine to look for new and compelling additions.
