Math at sea!

Hello, everyone!

Here is some information about our latest expedition, about an ABE
instructor from Oregon going to sea with oceanographers. Kathleen Salinas,
the instructor, is including some wonderful math problems in her daily
online journals, which should be up on the website starting August 23, 2005.

Plankton Layers: Salad Bars in the Upper Ocean
August 17-September 10, 2005

Join oceanographers as they travel by ship to Monterey Bay, California to do
scientific research. Also joining the team is an instructor in adult basic
education from Rogue Community College, Grants Pass, Oregon. She will be
sending daily online journal articles. Many of the journals contain basic
math problems about the science and the life on board the ship. Follow the
ship's cruise track, read the journals, and send an email to the instructor.
Ask questions of the scientists and crew members on the ship, and the
instructor will find the answers!
