TEACHERS and TIMSS - live interactive math forum

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
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
email or fax.

For more information, contact Nicole Stark at 1-800-556-4376 ext.753 or

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.
