August 8 2005 Vol. 10, No. 32 THE MATH FORUM @ DREXEL INTERNET NEWS California Mathematics Council - Mathematics Festival Program Graphing Calculator Help - Prentice-Hall | Planarity CALIFORNIA MATHEMATICS COUNCIL - MATHEMATICS FESTIVAL PROGRAM http://www.cmc-math.org/Festival/ The California Mathematics Council (CMC) has a new way to celebrate mathematics in schools: Mathematics Festivals. These hands-on, fee-for-service programs show students just how important mathematics is. At Festival stations, students solve tasks with a variety of manipulatives. For instance, at one station students make algebraic function patterns out of cubes, while at another station they use beans to solve simultaneous equations with two unknowns. Each station offers challenging tasks of differing levels of difficulty: some are easy enough for young primary students; some are hard enough to challenge adults. During a Festival, students working in pairs can solve many problems and visit many stations.

Meeting state and federal requirements for whole school and parent involvement, the Mathematics Festival Program also provides teacher professional development and outreach to parents. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- GRAPHING CALCULATOR HELP - PRENTICE-HALL http://www.prenhall.com/divisions/esm/app/calc_v2/index.html Want help using one of these calculator models? - TI-82 - TI-83 - TI-85 - TI-86 - TI-89 - TI-92 - HP48G - CFX-9850 GaPlus - Sharp EL9600C - Casio FX2 Select a model to display Prentice-Hall's help topics in alphabetical order, then click the topic to see specific instructions. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PLANARITY http://www.planarity.net In this Flash activity by John Tantalo, arrange the vertices such that no edges overlap. Solve graphs of increasing difficulty, accumulating points based on the number of moves and the time it took to make them.
