             Learning Math - Annenberg/CPB Channel
  Math Digest and Math in the Media - AMS | Poly Pages - A. Clarke

                  The Annenberg/CPB Channel

  Beginning January 22, the Annenberg/CPB Channel will 
  broadcast the first of five video and Web-based mathematics 
  courses for elementary and middle school teachers. 

  This new ten-part professional development course in 
  mathematics will explore the "big ideas" in algebraic 
  thinking, such as 
    - finding, describing, and using patterns
    - using functions to make predictions
    - understanding linearity and proportional reasoning
    - understanding non-linear functions
    - understanding and exploring algebraic structure

  The concluding case studies will show classroom applications 
  of what has been learned. The course consists of 10 
  two-and-a-half hour sessions, each with a half-hour of video 
  programming, problem-solving activities available in print 
  and on the Web, and class discussions.

  The deadline for Spring registration is December 31, 2001. 
  Register at no cost by calling 1-800-228-8030, or sign up
