          MATH TOOLS NEWSLETTER - JULY 5, 2003 - No. 4

  Thanks to those of you who joined us at our Web Poster Session
  at the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) earlier
  this week in Seattle, WA. We enjoyed meeting and talking with
  you about the Math Tools site. 

  We've been working hard to open more courses with a preliminary
  collection of resources. This month we are happy to announce the
  opening of Calculus, Algebra, and Geometry. We would be
  interested in your thoughts about the topics lists that we've
  developed. If you have any suggestions or comments, please post
  them in the Discussion Area.
