NECC Presentation: Implementing the Math Forum's Problems of the Week in Trenton, New Jersey
Gail Robinson and Annie Fetter represented the Trenton MATRIX grant at the 2007 National Educational Computing Conference (NECC), held this year in Atlanta, Georgia, June 24 - 27.
While at the conference, they learned about the following two opportunities for teachers to explore and share ideas.
Apple Learning Interchange
