SANDY RAY'S AP CALCULUS ON THE WEB

  http://www.seresc.k12.nh.us/www/apsum.html

  A site that offers College Board Information about 
  the AP exam, textbooks and support material, newsgroups, 
  the new 1998 syllabus, approved graphing calculators, 
  and links to Web resources:

  courses              labs          reference sheets
  calculator programs  lesson plans  software
  graphics             problems      tutorials
  graphing             projects      writing assignments

  These materials are particularly useful in 1996, since
  the AP Calculus requirements are in the process of 
  being revised.

  Sandy Ray is a math teacher at Alvirne (NH) High School
  where she is also Webmaster and writes the HTML for
  its Calculus page.

RUTH CARVER'S ELEMENTARY PROBLEM OF THE WEEK 

  "An Emperor walks around his large round dining table 
   pouring oats on the head of every other person. 
   He continues until there is only one person left. 
   Where should you sit if you do not want oats poured 
   on your head?"

   http://mathforum.org/ruth/elem.pow.html

Designed by Ruth Carver, this project challenges students
in grades 3-6 (ages 8-12) with creative, non-routine 
problems. It encourages them to explain their solutions, 
and provides registered classes with individualized 
feedback from "Visiting Math Mentors."

Math Mentors are typically high school classes, 
pre-service teachers, professional educators, and even 
other elementary school classes.

            FROM THE EMAILBAG: MATH TEXTBOOKS

   Do you have an opinion on pre-high school textbooks, 
   specifically Saxon?  Or do you have a site where 
   I could  post this question to a forum?  

                  - Bill Morrow


In general we try to stay away from advising about 
textbooks, but we do want to give you good Internet 
resources to help with your investigation. 

In this case you ask about a public discussion group 
where you could go to ask the question. We suggest the 
k12.ed.math or NCTM-L forums. There have been a number 
of discussions about the Saxon and other textbooks 
and these can be found in the archives.

      http://mathforum.org/epigone/nctm-l
      http://mathforum.org/epigone/k12.ed.math

There's a search feature for each of these archives.

If you want to post your own question and participate 
in  conversations you will find instructions on our 
discussions page: 

      http://mathforum.org/discussions.html

You can use the Math Forum Internet search to find other 
Internet references on Saxon and other curricula:

                   STUDENT SHOWCASE

WAY COOL MATH PROJECTS at Corona Avenue Elementary

A 5th grade class in Bell, California is working on 
monthly math projects; they've developed a series of 
Web pages, some of them interactive, to showcase their 
work, from Spirolaterals to Toy Story Math.

http://www.corona.bell.k12.ca.us/teach/swa/math.html

This is the most recent addition to our Student Showcase, 
the aim of which is to publicize outstanding student 
projects.
