When setting up this discussion group, I chose to not allow email
attachments, as a) they can potentially carry viruses, b) a particular
attachment may be of interest to only a small number of people on the list,
and c) it costs folks $$ to download large files.

Michael Sheppard has alerted me to the fact that there is a file-sharing
facility for math-learn at yahoogroups. This is the preferred way to share
files, rather than attaching them to emails. If you want to share a file,
upload the file to math-learn at yahoogroups, alert the list about its
existence, and each list member can decide if they want to download it or

All members of the list can use this facility, though you may need to
register with yahoogroups first (not sure about this).

To test this facility, I have posted a file vaguely related to my recent
post on teaching probability, which in fact came originally from Paul
Sutton, about a really excellent way to introduce statistics. I asked for
the list to be notified about the upload, but I'm not things are working as
they should. Could some of you download the file and let me know if you had

Potentially this is a very valuable feature.
