FEATURED INTERNET RESOURCE: THINKQUEST

Wondering what students are doing on the Web?

This month the Forum highlights ThinkQuest, a contest
designed to encourage teams of students to create
educational tools on the Internet. From Thinkquest's
hundreds of contest entries, we've picked out the math
projects and listed them - with live links - at our
OCTOBER HOT SPOT:

CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES IN MATH EDUCATION

Is your school moving to block scheduling?
Do you wonder whether tracking helps or hinders math
education?

Initiatives aimed at reforming math education have
raised concerns in many quarters. In answer to
requests for information, we've put together two
collections of articles and sites designed to cover
several sides of a couple of controversial issues.

BLOCK SCHEDULING

"Block Scheduling Causes More Problems Than It Solves"
"The Power of Innovative Scheduling" ...

GROUPING & TRACKING - PROS & CONS

FROM THE EMAILBAG

I'm looking for places that have information on teaching
division to elementary school students. Do you know
of a site on the Web that would help me? Thank you.

Hi Elizabeth -

The Math Forum is designed to help you find such sites!
Here are some ways of going about finding what you want:

I. You might start with our COMPLEX SEARCHER of Internet
math sites:

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/~steve/mathall.search.html

Enter the words DIVIDE DIVISION DIVISIBLE in the
keyword space, select the button for AT LEAST ONE of
these words, check the box for ELEMENTARY LEVEL, and
submit your search.

You'll get back a couple of dozen sites to explore
that have to do with division at the elementary level.

.::.::.::.::.::.::.::.

* You can find our complex math searcher

- from our home page: select SEARCH The Annotated Forum
Collection of Internet Math Resources (Steve's Dump)
and choose Complex Search of Math Resources; or

- from the SEARCH LINK in the menu bar at the bottom
of almost any page on our site - look in the top
menu bar of the search page that's returned for
"Complex Search."

To find what's in our Dr. Math archives and elsewhere
on our site, try the same search (without specifying
elementary) from our main search link in the bottom
menu bar on almost every Forum page.

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/grepform.html

.::.::.::.::.::.::.::.

II. If you'd like to see our list of elementary math sites,
take a look at

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/~steve/steve/mathelem.html

You can also get there from the link to Steve's Dump
in the bottom menu bar on our pages. In the Browse
section you'll find Mathematics by LEVEL.

We hope you find what you need. Thanks for writing in!
