        MATH TOOLS NEWSLETTER - MARCH 7, 2008 - No. 61

  For users of the new TI-Nspire handheld, Rex Boggs has set
  up a moderated discussion group at Google Groups. The purpose
  of the discussion is to share knowledge and problems to make
  the technology more productive, enjoyable and enlightening.

  If you are interested in becoming a member, please use the
  link listed above and request to join the group.


  Technology Tools for Thinking and Reasoning about Probability
  The Math Forum will host a new online workshop for teachers
  who work with students in 5th through 9th grade. Teachers will
  investigate some mathematics topics common to middle school
  curricula within the theme of probability. In this context
  they will explore the Math Tools digital library and several
  software tools that contribute in some way to mathematical
  understanding, problem solving, reflection and discussion.

  Each participant's $100 workshop fee is being covered by a
  National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, affording participants
  the convenience of anytime, anywhere online learning.

  The workshop will be offered March 17 - April 28.
  Certificates of completion will be available for participants
  finishing the six weeks of interaction. For an overview with
  additional detalis, visit:

  Deadline for applications is Monday, March 10, 2008.
