Discrete Mathematics for K-12 Students

One of the exciting changes in K-12 mathematics education is that discrete mathematics is now being introduced to students at all grade levels. In this minisymposium, the speakers will discuss why discrete mathematics is appropriate for K-12 students, and efforts currently underway to introduce discrete mathematics to K-12 teachers and students. Speakers will discuss discrete mathematics in Manhattan high schools, in the Maryland Science Center, in programs for elementary school teachers, and in venues for mathematics popularization on the internet.
