"Play with Lulu" and "Play with Reflectominoes" are the interactive microworlds for students to use. Both of them have teacher support pages, "Lulu Math Asides" and "Reflectominoes Math Asides," including correlations to curricula. Students log in to "My Album" to use the note icon to add text to a page that can be saved. The Web page will keep track of where they have been and when they visited a particular page. Created and maintained for SchoolNet (http://www.schoolnet.ca/) by Nathalie Sinclair, Alive Maths/Maths à Vivre is available in both English and French. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- New from the T2T FAQ Math Forum, Teacher2Teacher Service LEARNING TO MULTIPLY http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/faq.multiplication.taco From the Math Forum's Teacher2Teacher service, answers to a frequently asked question: How do I help students learn their multiplication facts?
