Squaring the Circle : This 15 page paper considers
the
problem of squaring the circle, one of the fundamental issues in
geometry, and determines the history of the subject and how it
has been addressed since ancient Greece. This paper gives
methods for trying to achieve the square of a circle and then
goes on to suggest modern theories of its application and the
development of other mathematical elements that were shaped
from this process. Bibliography lists 5 sources. MHcircle.wps
Graph Theory : A 6 page overview of the
mathematical
discipline of graph theory. As a field of study, graph theory has
nothing at all to do with what most people normally associate
with the word “graph,” and is a specialized field. Applications
range from analyzing children’s games to finding the furthest
stretch of graph theory principles. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Number Theory / Chaos Theory : A 10 page paper that
presents the basics of chaos theory, including mathematical
information in a historical context (theorists). The paper covers
Lorenz, Ruelle and Takens, Benoit Mandelbrot, Einstein, Shaw
and the Santa Cruz collaborative, and modern submissions. The
paper concludes with a look at the possibilities of application of
chaos theory to neural nets. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Cryptology, Cryptography and Electronic Security :
A 10 page research paper describing cryptology. Simply put,
cryptology is a part of the larger classification of number
theory, and provides the mathematical foundation upon which
the science of cryptography is built. Cryptography is high-level
encryption science used primarily to ensure privacy in our
increasingly electronic age. Electronic messages, personal data,
governmental security issues and secret industrial work are all
appropriate candidates for encrypting, and all routinely are in
some form or another when based in electronic media.
Bibliography lists 7 sources. Crypto.wps
Cryptography & The Issue Of Internet Security : A
5 page
overview of the importance of Internet users being able to
depend on the safety and security of the information they both
transmit and receive. Discusses cryptography as a workable
solution to the problem of Internet security and contrasts it to
the less effective TCP/IP. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

exploring the
basics of algorithms and data structures in relationship to
queues, data types, trees, hashing, heaps, graphing and design.
Bibliography lists 11 sources. Algbas.wps
Fear of Mathematics (Math Anxiety) : 9 pages in
length.
A comprehensive look at the problem of "math anxiety" and
numerous studies that have attempted to help improve our
understanding of its treatment. Among other things, the writer
discusses how to quantitatively assess Math Anxiety and
concludes with recommendations for helping young children
who suffer from it. Bibliography lists 20+ sources.

Gender and the Capacity for Learning Mathematics :
An in-depth, 20 page research paper in which the writer seeks to
determine whether which sex is more apt to have problems
grasping math concepts at an early age. Report contains
analysis, methodology, discussion, etc; Numerous studies are
cited and it is found that while girls generally perform better,
they are more likely to avoid harder levels of math than are their
male counterparts. Standard bibliography lists 20+ sources and
a FREE annotated ("working") bibliography is included !
