  ***FEATURED DISCUSSION
  Homework
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/discuss.html?&do=m&thread=__h_tool__g-11
  murali99 asks, "Getting the students to complete the
  assignments and home work is getting difficult day after day.
  Any ideas to get it done easily?"

  ***FEATURED DISCUSSION
  K3DSurf: New 3D math tool
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/discuss.html?&do=m&thread=_____dev-48
  nextstep announces, "I'm developing a new mathematic tool
  for drawing parametric equations. All your comments and
  suggestions are welcome."

  ***FEATURED DISCUSSION
  First Impressions of Dimenxian
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/discuss.html?&do=m&thread=___disc_24326_g-1
  QB writes, "I think it's an interesting approach to students
  learning algebra.... I'd be curious to hear what you all
  think about this."

  ***FEATURED TOOL
  Tool: Thinking Blocks: Addition and Subtraction
  Colleen King
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/26128/
  Learn how to solve word problems involving addition and
  subtraction. Organize story components into visual models
  that are easy to understand.

  ***FEATURED TOOL
  Tool: Thinking Blocks: Multiplication and Division
  Colleen King
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/26797/
  Learn how to solve challenging multiplication and division
  problems by building simple math models.

  ***FEATURED TOOL
  Tool: Function Grapher Applet
  Amir Rashedi
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/26523/
  With this one-variable function grapher applet and function
  evaluator, users can rotate axis/axes, change scale, and
  translate by using mouse or by entering data. The web site
  also contains information about functions, the coordinate
  system, and graphs of functions.

  ***FEATURED TOOL
  Tool: Math Open Reference: Thales' Theorem
  John Page
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/26227/
  A web page and interactive applet illustrating Thales' Theorem
  (the diameter of a circle always subtends a right angle to
   any point on the circumference).

  ***FEATURED TOOL
  Tool: Math Open Reference: Definition and properties of
    a Parallelogram
  John Page
   http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/26704/
  The applet shows a parallelogram where the user can drag any
  vertex. The other points then move in such a way that the
  figure remains a parallelogram at all times. A control to
  hide the details allows a classroom discussion where students
  can try to infer what the properties are as it is reshaped by
  the discussion leader.
