This is just a short message to update all our faithful readers and
followers on what we have done so far and what are currently working on.

You can find a schedule for the workshop at
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/workshops/usi/philly/schedule.html
(index.html will get you to the main page). We are trying to keep the
schedule up to date, but have asked the participants not to hold us to it!

Thus far we have learned how to write and edit our home pages and
yesterday did Suzanne Alejandre's Tessellation Tutorials in ClarisWorks.
We created pictures of our tessellations and put them on our home pages.
You can see those home pages from
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/workshops/usi/philly/participants/. Please
check them out and give us some feedback. The participants'
introductions are also included on those pages.

We have also learned a lot about email and browsing and searching the
web, and have enjoyed and very much appreciated the wonderful ideas that
many of you "distance participants" have sent in - thank you!

Today we will be looking at a few Problem of the Week projects run at the
Forum (see the link from the schedule) and will be writing about that.
We have also started to think about the projects that we want to work on,
and later today or tomorrow there will be a summary of those ideas posted
to the lists. We would welcome your participation in some of these
projects if you find the topics interesting and useful to you in your
classroom (or if you just think it's cool!).

Thanks again for all your valuable input. The participants here really
enjoy the active connection to the outside world!

-Annie
