The Austin (Texas) Area Calculus Teachers had their first meeting on
september 14. Twelve teachers from ten different schools attended and
we agreed that sharing resources, teaching strategies and information
would be a good thing. Participants were given sample textbooks from
Anton, Ostebee Zorn, Hughes-Hallet, Stewart, Forester (two books per
person.)

We plan to meet again on Monday, November 9 at 6 pm at McCallum High
School. Everyone is encouraged to bring 25 copies of some activity,
worksheet or interesting problem (with answer keys, of course.) We will
have a set of the new TI-89 calculators to work with and our primary
discussion will be on how the CAS will impact our teaching. We have
also invited a guest speaker from the College Board and will hear a
report from those members who attended the test development committee
meeting on oct 17 in fort worth. We also plan to do some lobbying next
semester in the Texas legislature concerning the increase in funding for
AP programs. I believe this will be a very valuable and worthwhile
organization and hope that we can increase participation. Anyone who
wants more info, can contact me through email ross@taylor.isd.tenet.edu
by phone 459-1963 (home), 352-6326 (work) or through mail at 7516
Meadowview Lane, Austin, Tx 78752.
