    Special End-of-Year Offer: Math Forum Teacher Membership
     CAUSEweb | NEFE High School Financial Planning Program

                 SPECIAL END-OF-YEAR OFFER:


  It was fun meeting some of you in person at the NCTM Annual
  Meeting last week in Anaheim, California. Thank you for
  filling the seats at our talks, visiting the Math Forum
  booth by the hundreds, and telling us you really appreciate
  the rubrics we provide to score your students' submissions
  to the Problems of the Week.

  To celebrate, we're making the "best $20 I ever spent" go
  even further, extending our special NCTM Conference offer
  to all. Purchase a Teacher Membership now, and it's good
  through August, 2006. That covers the rest of this spring,
  the summer, plus all of the coming academic year.

  A $20 Teacher Membership supports the Math Forum's overall
  work, and gives you:

    - unrestricted access to the Active Problem Library of
      over 800 non-routine, open-ended problems in elementary
      mathematics, pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry, all
      organized by level, topic, and difficulty

    - an account to monitor online work by students as they
      develop problem-solving and communication skills

    - access to organized online materials and activities
      such as answer checks, highlighted solutions,
      and commentary

  Renewal memberships for current teacher and student members
  cost only $10.

                     TEACHER SUPPORT PAGES

  Many problems in the Active Problem Library also feature
  Teacher Support pages, which outline the concepts involved
  in a PoW and provide connections to Standards and related
  problems. For a free sample of a Teacher Support page, visit:

  A Teacher Support page also accompanies each of the four
  current PoWs, available every other Thursday with a problem
  when it comes up for preview.

  For a list of all problems that have accompanying Teacher
  Support pages, please visit the following link. (Viewing the
  actual pages themselves requires a membership.)

  public service to increase the financial literacy of
  America's youth.
