From [email protected] Thu Feb 18 23:11:05 1993 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: Alex Lopez-Ortiz <[email protected]> Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,sci.math Subject: RFD: sci.math.{educational,recreational} Followup-To: news.groups Date: 15 Feb 1993 19:25:05 -0500 Organization: uwaterloo.ca Lines: 64 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Message-ID: <[email protected]> NNTP-Posting-Host: rodan.uu.net Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:3245 news.groups:66732 sci.math:39753                  R E Q U E S T   F O R   D I S C U S S I O N                 -------------------------------------------  This is a Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the new newsgroups sci.math.educational and sci.math.recreational  (unmoderated).   NEWSGROUPS:    sci.math.educational (sci.math.undergrad?)   sci.math.recreational  STATUS:    Unmoderated   PURPOSE:      The newsgroup sci.math.educational would be a forum for issues   related to undergraduate mathematics and related topics like   mathematical education, textbooks and problems at the undergrad level.    (Sci.math.undergrad has been proposed as an alternative name).    The newsgroup sci.math.recreational would be a forum for problems   of recreational interest and for amusement purposes. Jokes, anecdotes   and mathematical trivia should also be part of this newsgroup.  RATIONALE:      Over the last month, consensus seems to have it that sci.math should be   split.  Amongst the reasons put forward for this decision are:    - High Traffic Volume. To date, sci.math is the second ranked      sci.* newsgroup by number of readers. It ranks 133 by traffic     volume in Kbytes and 113 by number of articles, out of 1,876     total newsgroups.    - Clear separation of interests between recreational, educational and     professional research in mathematics.     -These groups are to join the hierarchy of sci.math newsgroups:       sci.math                                                           sci.math.num-analysis                                             sci.math.research                                              sci.math.stat                                                    sci.math.symbolic                                             Upon creation of these newsgroups, discussion that used to take place   in sci.math and covered by the charter of the new newsgroups should be   encouraged to move to the approppriate forum.  NEWSGROUP CREATION:    The discussion period will be from 15 February 1993 to 17 March 1993.    Please post all discussion in "news.groups".    If a consensus is reached by the end of the discussion period,   a CFV (Call for Votes) will be posted at that time. --  Alex Lopez-Ortiz                              [email protected] Department of Computer Science                      University of Waterloo Waterloo, Ontario                                                   Canada  From [email protected] Thu Apr  8 12:39:02 1993 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Alex Lopez-Ortiz) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,sci.math Subject: 2nd RFD: sci.math.{college,edu,rec} Followup-To: news.groups Date: 8 Apr 1993 12:28:54 -0400 Organization: University of Waterloo Lines: 73 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Message-ID: <[email protected]> NNTP-Posting-Host: rodan.uu.net Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:3441 news.groups:69478 sci.math:42232                  R E Q U E S T   F O R   D I S C U S S I O N                 -------------------------------------------  This is a second Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the new newsgroups sci.math.college, sci.math.edu, and sci.math.rec (unmoderated). The response to the first RFD was overwhelmingly positive. It was properly noticed that educational and recreational  are typically shortened to rec and edu. Moreover a distinction  between college/undergrad mathematics and educational issues seemed to be in place.  NEWSGROUPS:    sci.math.college   sci.math.edu   sci.math.rec  STATUS:    Unmoderated   PURPOSE:      The newsgroup sci.math.edu would be a forum for issues related to   the teaching and learning of mathematics at all levels, from    elementary to college education. In particular this newsgroup    will be a one-way gateway to existing listserv lists on topics   like calculators in the classroom and K-12 math education.    The newsgroup sci.math.college is a forum for the tens of thousands   of undergrad students who are taking math courses and their    teachers. Material like textbook selection, problems and challenges   are part of the chart of this newsgroup.    The newsgroup sci.math.rec would be a forum for problems of   recreational interest and for amusement purposes. Jokes, anecdotes   and mathematical trivia should also be part of this newsgroup.
