Speak Up 2011
http://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/index.html
This annual survey facilitated by Project Tomorrow gives
individuals the opportunity to share their viewpoints about
key educational issues — and to influence local, state and
federal policies and programs.
Since the inaugural survey in 2004, when it went by the name
NetDay, millions of students, educators, and parents have
shared their views through this national online
research project.
Participants may request survey data from previous years here:

promotional materials to help spread the word:

1, 2, 3, ..., 200,000 Integer Sequences
http://oeis.org/
The OnLine Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences™ (OEIS™), first
featured in these pages over fourteen years ago, is
approaching its 200,000th sequence.
Run the demonstration pages to see the many ways to use
the OEIS:
http://oeis.org/demo1.html
Can you guess the rules for generating these sequences?
http://oeis.org/Spuzzle.html
Use the WebCam to randomly browse through sets of sequences
such as "Best Sequences" and "Sequences Needing More Terms":

The encyclopedia averages about 55 new acceptances a day. To
discuss sequences, propose a new one, update an existing entry,
or see a list of citations to hundreds of the research articles
and books that have referenced the OEIS, check out the
accompanying wiki:

Neil J. A. Sloane began the encyclopedia in 1965, during his
graduate studies at Cornell University. For decades, he
maintained and updated it singlehandedly. To read more about
the history of the OEIS — and the foundation recently set up
to maintain it as a service freely accessible to the
public — visit
