Write Math with The Math Forum
http://mathforum.org/problems_puzzles_landing.html
On October 31st, we released our new standardsaligned, gradespecific program to improve math problem solving: Write Math with the Math Forum.
Engaging problems adapted from the Problems of the Week program have been correlated to state standards and math topics. Later this year we will also align to widelyused textbooks.
Trial Account

A trial membership gives you and your students access to
 Write Math with the Math Forum
 Problems of the Week Library
 Current Problems of the Week
You will receive two accounts  one for the teacher and one for students. During the trial period of twentyone days, up to five problems may be viewed by either the students or the teacher, students may submit to any of those five problems, and teachers may try out the corresponding Teacher Office to review and respond to their students' work.
If you and your students choose to submit solutions to a Current Problem of the Week in which free mentoring is available, they will also have a chance to receive feedback from the volunteer mentors.
Public Education Network
http://www.publiceducation.org/
Public Education Network (PEN) is a national association of local education funds (LEFs) and individuals working to advance public school reform in lowincome communities across our country.
Serving 11.5 million students (22 percent of America's public school population), this network of LEFs operates in
 34 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico
 18,000 schools
 more than 1,600 school districts in lowincome areas
PEN's international affiliates reach over 7,000,000 children in Mexico, Peru and the Philippines.
PEN seeks to build public demand and mobilize resources for quality public education for all children. PEN believes community engagement is the missing ingredient in school reform, and that the level of public involvement ultimately determines the quality of education provided by public schools.
On its web site, PEN provides information on grants and other sources of funds available to educators:
