SANDY RAY'S AP CALCULUS ON THE WEB

http://www.seresc.k12.nh.us/www/apsum.html

A site that offers College Board Information about
the AP exam, textbooks and support material, newsgroups,
the new 1998 syllabus, approved graphing calculators,
and links to Web resources:

courses labs reference sheets
calculator programs lesson plans software
graphics problems tutorials
graphing projects writing assignments

These materials are particularly useful in 1996, since
the AP Calculus requirements are in the process of
being revised.

Sandy Ray is a math teacher at Alvirne (NH) High School
where she is also Webmaster and writes the HTML for
its Calculus page.

- AT THE FORUM -

A weekly challenge and an archive of interesting problems:

RUTH CARVER'S ELEMENTARY PROBLEM OF THE WEEK

"An Emperor walks around his large round dining table
pouring oats on the head of every other person.
He continues until there is only one person left.
Where should you sit if you do not want oats poured
on your head?"

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/ruth/elem.pow.html

Designed by Ruth Carver, this project challenges students
in grades 3-6 (ages 8-12) with creative, non-routine
problems. It encourages them to explain their solutions,
and provides registered classes with individualized
feedback from "Visiting Math Mentors."

Math Mentors are typically high school classes,
pre-service teachers, professional educators, and even
other elementary school classes.

FROM THE EMAILBAG: MATH TEXTBOOKS

Do you have an opinion on pre-high school textbooks,
specifically Saxon? Or do you have a site where
I could post this question to a forum?

- Bill Morrow


In general we try to stay away from advising about
textbooks, but we do want to give you good Internet
resources to help with your investigation.

In this case you ask about a public discussion group
where you could go to ask the question. We suggest the
k12.ed.math or NCTM-L forums. There have been a number
of discussions about the Saxon and other textbooks
and these can be found in the archives.

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/epigone/nctm-l
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/epigone/k12.ed.math

There's a search feature for each of these archives.

If you want to post your own question and participate
in conversations you will find instructions on our
discussions page:

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

You can use the Math Forum Internet search to find other
Internet references on Saxon and other curricula:

STUDENT SHOWCASE

WAY COOL MATH PROJECTS at Corona Avenue Elementary

A 5th grade class in Bell, California is working on
monthly math projects; they've developed a series of
Web pages, some of them interactive, to showcase their
work, from Spirolaterals to Toy Story Math.

http://www.corona.bell.k12.ca.us/teach/swa/math.html

This is the most recent addition to our Student Showcase,
the aim of which is to publicize outstanding student
projects.
