  Mentors from Western Oregon University are offering free
  mentoring for two upcoming Math Fundamentals Problems of
  the Week. Mentors from the University of Victoria, British
  Columbia, will be working with the next Geometry Problem of
  the Week. Please have your students submit solutions.

    - Math Fundamentals: November 7 - 20
    - Math Fundamentals: November 21 - December 4
    - Geometry: November 14 - 27

  If your students receive replies from a mentor, encourage
  them to revise. Not only will your students learn more, but
  the mentors will learn as well!

                       HOW STUDENTS LEARN
      HISTORY, MATHEMATICS, AND SCIENCE IN THE CLASSROOM

              http://www.nap.edu/catalog/10126.html

  In this volume edited by M. Suzanne Donovan and John D.
  Bransford, practical questions that confront every classroom
  teacher are addressed using the latest research on cognition,
  teaching, and learning.

  The book explores how the principles of learning can be
  applied in teaching history, science, and math topics at
  three levels:

    - elementary
    - middle
    - high school

  Leading educators explain in detail how they developed
  successful curricula and teaching approaches, presenting
  strategies that serve as models for curriculum development
  and classroom instruction.

  The National Academies Press presents the contents of the
  book free of charge on their website:
