PLEASE DO NOT HIT REPLY IF YOU WANT THE ETEXT! INSTEAD, just click on Kirk's address or copy into a new email: kweiler@acsdny.org Otherwise, your request goes out to the entire listserv which makes it tougher for Kirk to track your requests, posts your address to the entire world (the listserv is public on the Drexel sitehello junk mail!) AND you are littering the inbox of everyone on the listserv!!!! Thanks! (and thank you, Kirk for sharing your work! It would be interesting for you to later post how many requests you've gotten) Tom> Date: Mon, 31 Mar 2008 19:59:48 0400> From: ageraci@verizon.net> Subject: Re: Free Algebra 1 EText> To: nysmathab@mathforum.org> > Ditto to the CD.> > Anthony Geraci> Kenmore West Senior High School> 33 Highland Parkway> Buffalo, NY 14223> > Thanks> Tony>  Original Message  > From: "Servant, Melissa" <mservant@wallkillcsd.k12.ny.us>> To: <nysmathab@mathforum.org>; <nysmathab@mathforum.org>> Sent: Monday, March 31, 2008 2:07 PM> Subject: RE: Free Algebra 1 EText> > > > Yes me too!!!
