ANNOUNCING THE THIRD ANNUAL ADULT NUMERACY PRACTITIONERS NETWORK MEETING Registration Information
WHO: The Adult Numeracy Practitioners Network (ANPN) is a self-supporting group of teachers, curriculum developers, and researchers interested in mathematical literacy for adults. Many of us work in ABE, GED, ESOL, workplace education, and developmental mathematics programs in the U.S. and Canada. Membership is open to all interested parties. Since March, 1994, we have communicated through a quarterly newsletter, "The Math Practitioner", an electronic listserv NUMERACY, and now we have our own website: http://www.std.com/anpn/
WHAT: We are planning our third annual all-day meeting to continue our network, share ideas, and improve our practice.
WHEN: Wednesday, April, 16, 1997, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. We have scheduled the ANPN meeting to coincide with the Annual Meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) on April 17-20. For information about how to register for the NCTM Conference, call (703) 476-2970 or go to their web site (http://www.nctm.org).
WHERE: The Marriott Hotel in Minneapolis, MN. Room location will be posted on our web site and on the hotel sign board.
