                        LEARNING MATH

  The Annenberg Foundation and the Corporation for Public
  Broadcasting (CPB) use media and telecommunications to
  advance excellent teaching in American schools. Video
  programs with coordinated Web and print materials are
  offered for the professional development of K-12 teachers.
  The programs are also intended for viewers at home and
  students in the classroom. Features of the website require
  the Macromedia Flash plug-in.

  College-level math courses for elementary and middle-school
  teachers address:

    - Patterns, Functions, and Algebra
    - Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability
    - Geometry

  Two additional courses, Number & Operations and Measurement,
  are planned for Fall 2003 and Spring 2004, respectively.
