 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.

  Currently there are three Festival packages: algebra,
  geometry and number.

  Meeting state and federal requirements for whole school and
  parent involvement, the Mathematics Festival Program also
  provides teacher professional development and outreach
  to parents.

                         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.
