1. T^3(TM) Regional Conferences - Attend one near you.

2. Don't Miss Out! - AMTE Proposals due May 31, 2002

3. New EXPLORATIONS(TM) series book- Real World Math with the CBL 2 and

4. Education Open Houses and Showcases - Schedule now for fall!

Find more details on all the above at

News Features:

1. All the benefits of the T^3(TM) International Conference, but at a
location convenient to you. A list of our Regional Conferences can be found

2. AMTE, the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, will hold their
seventh annual conference January 30 - February 1, 2003 at the Marriott
Atlanta Airport Hotel. Sessions should provide participants the opportunity
to examine and discuss current issues in mathematics teacher education and
professional development. Proposals should be sent electronically to the
DeAnn Huinker, Program Chair, at

3. This book provides students with an interesting way to explore math and
science concepts. Background information, set-up diagrams, and general
instructions with clear calculator keystrokes are given for each activity.
Space is provided for students to record data and complete easy-to-follow
exercises. Activities include "Pool Plunge: Linear Relationship Between
Water Depth and Pressure", "Sour Chemistry: The Exponential pH Change", and
"Graph It in Pieces: Piecewise-defined Functions".

4. During this, our first year of preservice technology showcases, we have
received a lot of positive feedback. Our program continues to improve and
expand. If you are interested in scheduling a mathematics or science
technology showcase for your preservice teachers this fall, now is the time
to do so. For more information, see - c4 New this fall,
will be our open house program. We are looking for a few, select
universities to provide us with a classroom for the day. In return, we will
set up activities using TI Technology and schedule brief presentations
throughout the day. We are also interested in universities that will invite
students from neighboring campuses to attend. If you would be interested in
hosting an Open House, please contact Barbara Ridener at
