Clem's Peace Corps job -- Teaching High School Mathematics in Zimbabwe -- 2000-2001

Here is PDF copy of: * "Common Science and Maths Areas". *
-- A small book I wrote, designed to prepare Zimbabwe High School Students for National Exams in science and math. This book formed the basis for an effort to bring science and "maths" teachers together when Jean and I were in the Peace Corps. It is in PDF format and you can print all of it or a few pages at a time by telling your own printer what range of pages you want. The Table of Contents are on page 4 of this PDF document.

**This fractal has equation z = -.2*z^4 + 1.2*z ^2. It was drawn by
"varyfrac" a program written by my son Tom and me.**
