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 build an on-line resource of lesson plans,
activities and/or projects integrating the Internet into math, science, and
language arts curricula. Sheila Talamo <>
will be working onsite on this project. She sketched the following ideas in
her application:

" This project, entitled Louisiana Lessons, is designed to develop an
online collection of resources, lesson plans, multi-disciplinary units, and
collaborative projects that integrate the Internet into Mathematics,
Science, and Language Arts Curricula. The special twist to this collection
of curriculum materials is that, in addition to integrating technology
tools, the activities and lessons will particularly spotlight Louisiana and
its many resources.

"One goal of the project is to provide models of good Internet activities
that support standards-based instruction. The plan is that these models
will inspire other teachers to develop and submit their ideas and
activities so as to provide a sustainable and dynamic electronic resource
for teachers."

While Sheila's work may have components specific to Louisiana, the working
group will focus on the general models and applying these to other contexts
as well. If you would like to be involved in this effort please send a note
to Sheila and to me, Annie Fetter <>. In
your note you should indicate the level of your access to the Internet
during the
week of the institute (July 14-19), the resources, expertise, and energy
you bring to this project, and your possibilities for being involved after
the institute. We will also be discussing things online before the 14th,
so availability then is a plus.

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