6th and 3rd Grade Math Resources
From: Harald Skardal Subject: My 6th and 3rd graders Date: Wed, 02 Nov 94 10:27:07 EST My sons, in 6th and 3rd grade, love math. Is there a Web forum, downloadable problems, or how do I get them involved? Thanks, Harald
Subject: Re: My 6th and 3rd graders Hi Harald. Try the Forum's Math Library, which has a lot of cool math and education Web sites. You might find something interesting there. http://mathforum.org/library/ Of course, you might find something interesting on the Math Forum itself! You can certainly poke around a bit. Feel free to write to me (or to Dr. Math) for more information. -Annie, Consulting Physician :-) firstname.lastname@example.org __________ From Steve: Harald, you might want to read the rec.puzzles newsgroup for good problems of all kinds. There also is an archive of past puzzles and a regular posting of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) which helps people stay away from asking about puzzles already well-explored on the group. Let me know if you need help figuring out how to access these. -- steve THE rec.puzzles ARCHIVE The entire archive is also accessible via anonymous FTP, from any site which maintains archives of the newsgroup news.answers. One such site is rtfm.mit.edu, where the archive is in the directory /pub/usenet/news.answers/puzzles/archive. Because the text of the archive is so large, it is broken into a number of files with names according to the types of puzzles in each part. The file Instructions contains the index. The remaining files contain alternating problem text and solution text for all the puzzles. Occasionally a single puzzle is split between files. THE rec.puzzles ORACLE This is a group of rec.puzzles regulars, who are familiar with the rec.puzzles archive, and who will find your answer there if it exists, or maybe compose an original answer if they are interested enough! At any rate, they promise to respond to your question within two days, and perhaps save you the embarrassment of posting a well-worn question. They will respond within two days even if they do not know the answer to your question. To query the rec.puzzles oracle, send email containing your question to the following address: email@example.com Comments and suggestions are always welcome. Send them to the oracle, or to Chris Cole.
