How do I subscribe/unsubscribe?
Anyone wanting to register must begin with a (free) subscription to one of
the "...-open" lists. Send the following e-mail message:
(No Subject- just the message)
where X-Y is either K-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 or general. To UNSUBSCRIBE (when
a user no longer wants to be part of the Mailing List) send the same message as above, but replace "subscribe" with "unsubscribe". Some subscribers who show no interest in becoming registered teams will be notified prior to being dropped.
When does an "open" subscription become full registration?
After subscribing to any "-open" list a user will receive an acknowledgment
and a REGISTRATION FORM that should be completed and returned to Alan
Hodson, firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the P.O.Box. The account will remain UNREGISTERED until all aspects of the form have been received.
When is a "good time" to register?
Most teams try to be ready during the first weeks of the U.S. school year
(first weeks in September) but other overseas teams have different school
calendars. To accommodate differences, and new students/friendships or
changes in a class, the sponsor may change the members of a team, but
should try to keep the name of the teams (please choose them carefully,
and exercise your veto power: names implying violence, racism, sexism or
questionable character traits will not be accepted.) Since the
postings can be done anytime within a year of the registration date,
registration for MathMagic can be done at any time. Some U.S. schools
use the project as an integral part of summer school. Schools with sporadic
participation may be considered "REGISTERED" passed the 12 month period. Please
do not abuse this flexible time frame. UNSUBSCRIBING when the time is up is the
correct thing to do.
