I'd like to offer help as a mentor.

I'm a math professor, but I do more math education than research these
days. I like working with teachers, especially elementary and
middle school teachers. Last Saturday I taught an all-day class
on clock arithmetic for K-8 teachers. One of the participants,
after returning from a break, said, "This is the only class in the
building where people are smiling." I guess this means the class
was a success. You can see a course outline at
http://www.math.csusb.edu/faculty/susan/modular/clock_course.html

This summer I'm writing Web pages, both fleshing out my
clock arithmetic stuff, and building a site on tessellations
(inspired by Suzanne Alejandre's pages at the Forum.
She was a participant in the Summer '95 institute, though
I claim credit for her first HTML lesson (brag, brag!))

Particular Web issues I'm interested in:
-creating materials that are useful to teachers and students
(comments welcome on my stuff)
-sites that explore a mathematical topic in depth, in a way that
students and teachers are encouraged to learn actively,
instead of just looking at cool pictures
-Where's the Math? Too many things on the Web are *just* cool
pictures, with connections to the math curriculum
unmentioned and unexplained
