pass them on to listserves of the sort of people who might be able to fill
those requests or flesh out the examples, but who need inspiration. Or

We are looking for new submittals from scientists and engineers for
Practical Uses of Math And Science -- PUMAS (poo' ? mas) -- a collection
of one-page examples of how math and science topics taught in K-12 classes
can be used in interesting settings, including everyday life. The examples
are written primarily by scientists and engineers, and are available to
teachers, students, and other interested parties via the PUMAS Web Site.
Our goal is to capture, for science education, the flavor of the vast
experience that working scientists have with interesting and practical
uses of math and science... See for examples and
information on how to submit your practical use of math and science.
