A series of 4 ninety minute videoconferences on computer use in
pre-algebra, algebra and geometry classes will be shown on February 17,
March 3, March 17 and March 31, 1994. These videoconferences feature
documentary presentations of real classroom situations, demonstrations of
the software used in those classes and discussions with the teachers from
the classes. Telephone questions are received and discussed by the
studio panel of teachers and college educators. All of the software
demonstrated is readily available commercial software. Various
classroom situations are shown including the one-computer classroom
as well as computer labs, etc.

The Center for Improved Engineering and Science Education of the
Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ has previously
produced 17 such programs. Tapes and teacher guides are available
for all of these presentations.

The 1994 series will use documentaries that were produced with
funding from the Charles A. Dana Foundation. The videoconferences
originate from the studios of the New Jersey Network - the Public
Television Agency of New Jersey. The transmissions are sent out
nation-wide by the Satellite Educational Resources Consortium (SERC).
These transmissions are via Ku band on a split-transponder. The time
of the videoconferences is 4:30 - 6:00 PM Eastern Time.

Many states have made arrangements through their Departments of
Education to have these videoconferences available to all schools
and teachers in their states at no additional cost to the
participants. Otherwise the cost is $240 for a site fee or
about $50 each for the tapes.

Locations not having satellite capability can often arrange to
view the programs at a nearby school, at a college or univeristy or
at a hospital or business location.

Those wishing to have more information about these inservice
programs for middle school and high school mathematics teachers
should contact Patricia Donnelly at 201-216-5375 or via e-mail at

I would also be pleased to hear from you in this regard.
