Intern Jobs


To claim a job, write your name and date you plan to finish next to it. You can work with friends. Use Paint.net if you don't already have picture editing software. Note the time the job took you, so we can estimate difficulty of future tasks. If you do not know how to do a task but would like to develop these skills, you are welcome to claim it - we will help you learn.

Once you write your name, I will contact you with details. If you want to volunteer to be an intern, contact me: maria@naturalmath.com

Make a 100 by 100 icon and a 100 by 400 banner including the icon for the Math 2.0 Interest Group site. The banner must have words "Math 2.0 Interest Group." The concepts that can be expressed: math (no numbers please - something advanced), networking, communities, social media, programming. The Group and its current lame banner are at http://mathfuture.wikispaces.com/events

Make a 100 by 100 (or smaller) icon for every community participating in Math 2.0 webinars http://mathfuture.wikispaces.com/events. Put icons and the name of the webinar's host in the table on this page: http://mathfuture.wikispaces.com/ The icon must be linked to the community. You can see an example of what to do with Natural Math there. Most communities already have icons or banners, but you may need to resize or crop them.

Crop, enhance and resize Math Club photos. The finished size must be 100-600 in width and height, in multiples of 50. Groups of photos with the same name (e.g. "Infinity_05032010_1.jpg, Infinity_05032010_2.jpg, Infinity_05032010_3.jpg") should be resized to the same size, because they often go into slide shows.

Scan, enhance and resize pictures from Math Clubs. The finished size must be 72dpi and 100-600 in width and height, in multiples of 50. Groups of pictures clipped together must be given the same name (e.g. "Infinity_05032010_1.jpg, Infinity_05032010_2.jpg, Infinity_05032010_3.jpg") and resized to the same size, because they may go into a slide show. You need a scanner to do this.

Make a list of good pages where you can find events from these communities, for example, "Art of Problem Solving" has "What's new" on its front page - easy! http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/
