|A site for children that promotes open-ended and playful explorations of important math concepts, and more serious reflection on topics such as Hurricane Katrina. Start with the magic chalkboard, then enter Math Cats MicroWorlds (interactive projects); explore the world of polygons, polyhedra, large numbers, magic squares, lissajous, and more; view and submit artwork for the Math Cats art gallery; or enter the Math Cats' Attic (an archive of past questions and answers from the magic chalkboard). Children are invited to e-mail the site drawings, story problems, questions, or ideas. Older Cats (teachers, parents) will find an idea bank of math activities and resources suggested by teachers, and may subscribe to the Math Cats News, a free twice-monthly e-mail newsletter featuring Math Cats site updates, annotated listings of other math sites that promote creative explorations, suggestions for family math activities and classroom activities, and good ideas from other educators.|
