                       SITE MAP - MATH TOOLS


   The Math Tools digital library of technology resources
   has a new feature: the site map. Now you can view all of
   the topics and sub-topics of each course in outline form.
   The small numbers to the right of the topics indicate the
   number of resources that have been cataloged so far.

   Currently open courses include:

     Math PreK          Math 6
     Math K             Math 7
     Math 1             Algebra I
     Math 2             Geometry
     Math 3             PreCalculus
     Math 4             Calculus
     Math 5             Discrete Math

   Soon, site maps for these additional courses will also be
   added: Algebra II, Trigonometry, and Statistics/Probability.

   Registration is free. By filling out the form and checking
   the "receive newsletter" option, you will receive an email
   update on new features added to the library on the first
   Saturday of each month.

   We are particularly interested in your thoughts about the
   topics lists that we've drafted. If you have any suggestions
   or comments, please post them in the Discussion Area.

   This second edition of "Helping Your Child Learn Math" is for
   parents of children in kindergarten through fifth grade. It
   includes a variety of activities that will help children
   learn and apply mathematical concepts such as geometry,
   algebra, measurement, statistics, and probability.

   All of the activities in this book relate math to everyday
   life and complement many of the math lessons that children
   are learning in school. The activities use materials that are
   easy to find.
