                         ADDING INTEGERS

 http://students.washington.edu/smithr3/integers/learning.html

  Rebecca Smith made a website to help her seventh grade math
  students learn about adding integers using the concept of
  zero pairs. 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! Check these resources
  to help you plan:
