  Monday, 1 October through Wednesday, 3 October, we will 
  upgrade our hardware. During this transition, we will 
  temporarily disable searching, posting, and submitting on 
  the site, but will continue to serve Math Forum Web pages 
  for your viewing. Thank you for your patience as we make 
  these improvements to our site.

             http://www.seattlecentral.org/qelp/

  Supported by the National Science Foundation, QELP provides 
  resources to integrate mathematics and environmental science 
  in college classrooms. 

  Math data sets include:
 
      - Linear Scatterplots
      - Exponential Scatterplots
      - Logistic Scatterplots
      - Power Scatterplots
      - Periodic (Cyclical) Scatterplots
      - Other Bivariate Scatterplots
      - Histograms
      - Other Univariate Data

  Each data set is annotated with background science and 
  mathematics information, and may be downloaded in one of four 
  common formats (RichText, Excel, Text, Minitab), or exported 
  to WebStat.

                    New from the T2T FAQ
              Math Forum, Teacher2Teacher Service
                          
        http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/faq.metric.html

  From the Math Forum's Teacher2Teacher service, answers to
  a frequently asked question: What are some activities I can 
  use for Metric Week?

  Suggestions include techniques to use to help students,
  archived T2T conversations on the subject, resources from
  the archives of Ask Dr. Math, books for reference, and links 
  to relevant Web sites.
