Subj:  Summer internships constructing 
       Mathematica Laboratory Notebooks

Please bring the following summer internship announcement to the 
attention of potential applicants.  These internships---funded by 
the National Science Foundation---should be of great interest to 
students who have programming experience with Mathematica.

Announcement --- Electronic Version
1994 Laboratory Design Workshop
June 13 --- August 19
Bowdoin College
Brunswick, Maine


The Bowdoin College Mathematics Department, with the support of 
the National Science Foundation, will hire three undergraduate 
Summer Interns to develop curriculum materials for technology-
intensive courses in calculus and applied mathematics.  
Specifically, the Interns will construct, with guidance from 
faculty members, computer laboratory projects in the form of 
Mathematica notebooks.  An emphasis will be placed on constructing 
projects which either 
     (1) explore concepts in multivariable calculus, or 
     (2) analyze differential equation models in economics and the 
         natural sciences.

Students applying for Summer Intern positions should have the 
following qualifications:
1.   Solid mathematics background, including experience with 
     differential equation models.
2.   Proficiency with Mathematica, particularly its use as a 
     programming language.
3.   Expository writing abilities.
4.   A self-reliant and conscientious approach to academic 
     responsibilities.
Though not required, a background in economics or a natural 
science would also be valuable.

An application for a Summer Internship must include:
1.   Your completed Application Form.
2.   A Transcript from your undergraduate institution.
3.   A Statement of Interest.  This statement should discuss why 
     you are interested in a Summer Internship and why you are 
     well-suited for such a position.
4.   Two Letters of Reference.  The letters, from faculty members 
     at your institution, should evaluate your application in 
     light of the four qualifications listed above.  The referees 
     should mail their letters directly to Bowdoin.

The ten week appointment---from June 13 to August 19---will carry 
a stipend of $3000.  Information will be provided concerning local 
housing options.

APPLICATION DEADLINE:  Monday, March 21, 1994
Decisions will be announced by Friday, March 25

Completed applications or requests for further information should 
be directed to:
