Lundin Games for Math and Social Skills LEARNING MATH: GEOMETRY The Annenberg/CPB Channel Starts January 28, 2003 http://www.learner.org/resources/resource.html?uid=167 Available in 2003, Learning Math: Geometry, is a video- and Web-based course for elementary and middle school teachers. Geometric reasoning is introduced as a method for problem solving. Some important geometric ideas, such as symmetry, similarity, and trigonometry, will also be examined. The course material progresses from more visual, intuitive ways of solving problems to more formal explorations of geometric ideas, properties, and proofs. Registration is recommended at least three weeks in advance of the start of a workshop or course to ensure that support materials reach you in time.

The Java applet has all the common operators and functions as expected from any scientific calculator, combined with function graphing capabilities. The calculator has the ability to graph the hyperbolic functions and symbolically differentiate functions in one variable, making it a tool for higher-level algebra and calculus students. Instructions are listed below the calculator. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- GAMES FOR MATH AND SOCIAL SKILLS http://mathforum.org/alejandre/cooperate.html The Math Forum has started a collection of links to games for building math and social skills.
