                          CONVERGENCE

           http://convergence.mathdl.org/jsp/index.jsp

  Convergence is an online magazine for teachers of
  grades 9-14 interested in using mathematics history as a
  learning and teaching tool. This new publication is
  sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America, with
  the cooperation of the National Council of Teachers of
  Mathematics and funding from the National Science Foundation.

  Convergence will include:

    - Expository articles on the history of mathematics that
        possess a special pedagogical or learning appeal.
    - A sharing of classroom experiences.
    - Animated mathematical demonstrations that can be
        downloaded for classroom use.
    - Translations and commentaries of mathematical works
        that shed light on mathematical discovery and
        understanding.
    - Discussions of particular problems from a historical
         context.
    - Reviews of materials, books, websites and teaching aids

                   GRAPHING LINEAR EQUATIONS

      http://mathforum.org/alejandre/palm/times.palm.html

  Suzanne Alejandre at the Math Forum has developed a middle
  school lesson using ImagiGraph and a Palm OS handheld to help
  students learn about linear equations. The step-by-step
  directions include:

    - Getting Ready
    - Define an Equation
    - View Graph
    - Change Slope and Y-intercept
    - View Data Table

  ImagiGraph is one of three software applications included
  in the ImagiMath suite, a product of ImagiWorks. The suite
  can be purchased for $39.00. A fourteen day demo version
  is available for download:
