                         MERGER AND MOVE

NCTM-News-Releases/The-Math-Forum-Joins-NCTM/ The Math Forum has merged with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics! 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 -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- DECORATING 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
id=1476460890229X10A0A10A4Iw7Hb 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 -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- HUNTING DRAGONS 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 URL to 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 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. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum at NCTM Online PD Online Workshops Ask Dr. Math Problems of the Week Powerful Problem Solving Mathematics Library Math Tools Teacher2Teacher Discussion Groups Join the Math Forum Ask Dr. Math Books Facebook Blogs Twitter Feed SEND COMMENTS TO: _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ An archive of all the Math Forum newsletters and directions for subscribing can be found at
