Description: Using the Internet for a global exchange of student-written math story problems. Grade 4 students participated in an enrichment project entitled Cross Cultural Story Problems in Math from December '94 to May '95. Students received story problems from Hawaii, South Africa, New York, Israel, New Orleans, Alabama and California and also wrote and sent their own problems to partner classrooms from these areas. The project was interdisciplinary and relied on cooperative learning practices, aiming to improve and reinforce skills and concepts in Math, Social Studies and Language Arts. With a link to information on how to set up your own project. This article originally appeared in 1995 in Teaching Mathematics, a publication of the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers' Association.
