        MATH TOOLS NEWSLETTER - JANUARY 3, 2004 - No. 10

  Our New Year's Resolution is to make it easier to use Math
  Tools. We will

  Cut down on irrelevant postings:
     * only allow posts from registered users
     * let you subscribe to a specific discussion attached to
       an individual tool, lesson plan, story, or other Math
       Tools resource; and list all discussions in a more
       browse-friendly way

  Make it easier for you to find and work with Math Tools:
     * improve our search engine
     * include more information than just the tool name on
       appropriate search and browse pages

  We are also actively seeking folks to facilitate discussions,
  write reviews of tools, help us catalog suggested resources,
  and describe tools that are being successfully used in classrooms.
      * If you'd like to help, please write Suzanne at
        suzanne@mathforum.org

  We hope these improvements will contribute to a happy and more
  productive new year for you! Your further suggestions are most
  welcome. Please send suggestions to mtoolscomments@mathforum.org
