On Tuesday, April 28, join the Annenberg/CPB Channel and your colleagues across the country for a provocative LIVE discussion on the Third International Math and Science Study (TIMSS). Using TIMSS video footage of mathematics classrooms around the world, participants will investigate some of the differences this study identified in the way mathematics is taught in the United States, Japan and Germany. Dr. Alfred Mannister from the University of California San Diego will serve as content guide.
You can participate in TEACHERS and TIMSS live, from 3:15 - 4:15 p.m. (eastern) and share your ideas, questions, and observations on-line or by email or fax.
For more information, contact Nicole Stark at 1-800-556-4376 ext.753 or email email@example.com.
The Channel is produced by Harvard University and the Smithsonian Institution in partnership with the Massachusetts Corporation for Educational Telecommunications (MCET), and funded by the Annenberg/CPB Math and Science Project.

*Receiving the Channel's satellite signal The Channel's satellite coordinates are Galaxy K4, 99 degrees West Longitude, Transponder 12 - Horizontal Polarity, Downlink Frequency: 1189.375 MHZ. To receive this signal, you must have a General Instruments Digicypher II, Model 4200V (SCPC format), Channel 901; this is the only satellite receiver system that will support the reception of the Annenberg/CPB Channel.
First time users will have to register this equipment in advance with MCET, the Channel's broadcast network (800-556-4376x790). You will not be able to receive this series unless you contact MCET. (NOTE: The KU Band 11939.375 MHz frequency is no longer operative for MCET or the Annenberg/CPB Channel.)
* Taped Rebroadcasts We encourage teachers to participate live and interactively, if possible. However, if you are unable, a taped version will be repeated at the following times:
Tuesday, May 5 -- 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (eastern)
