This site requires Shockwave. Sections include: - Learning - Apply and Practice: "Jeopardy" - Assessment - Help: Glossary, Properties of Adding Integers -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PI DAY AT THE EXPLORATORIUM http://www.exploratorium.edu/pr/documents/04-3Pi.html Have you made your plans yet for Pi Day, Sunday, March 14 at 1:59 pm? (It's also Einstein's birthday!) If you are in San Francisco, join the event that the Exploratorium has planned. Highlights include: - eating lemon meringue, apple, peach, and other pies - watching the U.S. premier of "Porridge, Pulleys and Pi: Two Mathematical Journeys," directed by George Paul Csicsery - meeting real, live mathematicians Vaughn Jones, of the University of California, Berkeley, and Bob Osserman, of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute If San Francisco is too far, there's still plenty of time to get your own local event organized!
