  For the 2004-05 school year, the National Council of Teachers
  of Mathematics (NCTM) has chosen the theme "Developing
  Algebraic Thinking: A Journey from Preschool to High School."
  In support of that theme, NCTM has assembled links to
  journals, publications, Web sites, and sessions at the Annual
  Meeting and Regional Conferences that relate to algebra, a
  key theme from "Principles and Standards for School
