MATH FORUM EXHIBIT HALL HANDOUTS FROM NCSM AND NCTM

http://mathforum.org/workshops/nctm2010/handouts.html

Did you miss us in the Sponsor Display area at NCSM or the
Exhibit Hall at NCTM? Maybe you did find us but you would like
additional copies of our handouts? Feel free to access the
printed matter (in PDF format) distributed recently at our
booths, including information on our Professional Development
program and samples from our Problems of the Week program.

MATH FORUM AMBASSADORS

http://mathforum.org/workshops/nctm2010/ambassadors.html

Some of the folks joining us in the display area or booth, or
presenting with us, were not actually Math Forum or KenKen
staff. These are collaborators from around the US and Canada
who have been working closely with us in our online workshops,
onsite professional development, and online professional
development courses. A big thank-you to you all!
