Mathematica in Education, beginning its third year of
publishing, is an interdisciplinary, quarterly journal
devoted to the use of Mathematica in undergraduate and
graduate education. Articles are peer-reviewed and
should interest a wide audience of mathematicians, 
scientists, and engineers who use Mathematica in the

In each issue of Mathematica in Education we publish 
articles from people using Mathematica in their
classrooms in a variety of disciplines.  Articles cover
curricular, pegagogical, or philosophical issues related to
the use of CAS in education. A regular feature is
"Excursions in Programming" with an additional column of
student work scheduled to debut in the upcoming issue.
We also print lists of workshops, seminars, conferences,
etc., that might be of interest to Mathematica users in
education. We list email, archive sites, ftp sites, etc.,
that contain Mathematica related materials.

Some recently published articles include:

-  "Cinematic Thinking and Mathematica", by Steve
Dunbar and David Fowler of the University of Nebraska.
