```          MATH TOOLS NEWSLETTER - APRIL 5, 2003 - No.1

Thank you for your Math Tools registration. We're off to a
great start as we develop our new digital library. Currently
we have two active courses, Math 7 and PreCalculus. By the
end of next week we'll have the Math 2 course open, with links
to a preliminary set of tools, activities, lessons, stories,
and support pages.

For those of you who have been participating in our
Roundtable Discussions, we appreciate all of your activity.
You've presented many useful viewpoints and ideas on how
teachers use tools to help students learn mathematics. We're
going to post a summary of the first two Roundtable
Discussions soon with some follow-up questions.

Math Tools is always interested in your feedback. Soon we'll
have a special Suggestion Box for this. We're looking
that really make the site meet your needs.
