MERGER AND MOVE
The Math Forum has merged with the National Council of Teachers
Now called The Math Forum at NCTM, we'd like your help
sprucing up our new office -- and dusting off our old website.
PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week
"I'm not sure, but I do know how to solve another problem. This
time, I'm going to explain how I solved it. Let's go!"
- Athena, highlighted in the FunPoW's Latest Solution
Still located in southeastern Pennsylvania, The Math Forum has
moved from Philadelphia to the town of Swarthmore, at the foot
of the college campus where it all began 24 years ago.
Our new address in the "Ville" is
100 Park Avenue WH1, Swarthmore, PA 19081
(The "WH" stands for "warehouse.")
Now we'd like your help decorating ... and breaking in our new
mailbox! Please send us a treat that is, to most extents,
- flat in shape;
- mathematical in nature;
- lime green-ish in color (our new hue);
- and no bigger than a postcard (by mail), or that retains
its resolution at 4.25" x 6" after uploading to
Everything that we receive, we'll use to tile one (or more?) of
our many blank white walls.
Now taking place: math education conversation of the day
"Well that was bye-bye to my evening.... Fascinating. This
seems to be the best available resource on Tennenbaum's
theorem. It's much more complicated in its connections and
implications than I expected."
- Jack, posted to the sci.math discussion
To reflect our new name and affiliation, we've already updated
many of our millions of web pages -- along with their
corresponding logos, headers, and footers. But if you spot a
reference to "The Math Forum @ Drexel," or any Drexel dragons,
please let us know. E-mail the exact mathforum.org URL to
email@example.com under the subject line "here be dragons!"
(Just like real dragons, the ones online can have magic
powers ... like invisibility: we just found a link to
drexel.edu hidden in the white space of some transparent pixels.
So beware, and be brave!)
Thank you for all your patience during our merger; and stay
tuned for a new look to this venerable newsletter while we get
back to bringing you the latest and greatest in math and math
education every week.
