We invite you to become part of an online working group associated with the
Math Forum's resource development institute scheduled for July 14-19 at
Swarthmore College. This conference is an invitational program for
pioneering K-12 mathematics teachers who are experienced in
telecomunications and the use of computers in the classroom. A group of 13
participants will be working onsite with the latest tools, developing
resources and projects that will enhance the usefulness and accessibility
of the Internet for math education. You will be able to read more about the
institute and the participants at

One likely project is to develop some coherent paths through online lesson
plans, activities and/or projects for elementary students. Forum staff
member Claire Brill <> will be working on
this project for 9-12 year olds all summer. Ruth Carver
<>, Peter Applebaum
<>, Tom Scavo
<> and Gail Lauinger <> will
be working at the institute on elementary math projects including preparing
sets of data for students to work on, setting up the Elementary Problem of
the Week for next year, writing lesson plans for the Web, and other student

If you would like to be involved in this effort please send a note to
Claire, Ruth, Peter, Gail, Tom, and me (Annie Fetter
<>). In your note you should indicate the
level of your access to the Internet during the week of the institute (July
14-19th), the resources, expertise, and energy you bring to this project,
and your possibilites for being involved after the institute. We will
also begin discussion online before the 15th, so availability to
participate in that at some level would be a bonus.

Look for institute activity on the geometry.institutes newsgroup later in
July (see for
information on accessing this newsgroup).
