Projects for Science Fairs - To date there have not been a lot of
mathematics projects in the science fairs and the authors believe that
one reason for this might be that it is not at all clear what a
mathematics project might involve. To help shed some light on this
problem the authors have prepared a list of possible projects and many
references on topics that could make exciting and interesting projects.
