 Institute for Technology in Mathematics
 The
Institute for Technology in Mathematics has been a pilot program under the
New Jersey Department of Higher Education with two major objectives:
to initiate curriculum transformation at the secondary level in mathematics by
using technology and to prepare a cadre of teachers who would serve as leaders
and resource people in their school district in providing encouragement and
technical assistance to their colleagues.

pages on Published Journals and Preprints and Reports which are
being replaced by links to
the list of
printed journals and the
lists of preprint
servers on the AMS site.
