 MATH TOOLS NEWSLETTER - JANUARY 15, 2010 - No. 83

***FREE OPPORTUNITY FOR TEACHERS OF GRADES 5-9
  http://mathforum.org/pd/algebraic/

The Math Forum is again hosting the online workshop "Using 
Technology and Problem Solving to Build Algebraic Reasoning,"
designed for teachers who work with students in 5th through 
9th grade.

Teachers will explore how technology can help students build
algebraic reasoning as they model and solve contextualized
problems using a variety of representations, including
graphs, tables, equations, and words. 

We are accepting registrations now:

  January 28 - March 10, 2010

This workshop is free. Participants who successfully complete 
it will receive a $25 coupon to apply to the cost of any of 
our online courses. Those participants can also receive 
1.5 CEUs for a fee of $25 to cover administrative costs.

We are moving the Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) 
from the old software system to a new system. Both are 
functional, but not all the tPoWs are available yet in the 
new system. You may use either system during this transitional 
period. If you need a login, visit this page:

         http://mathforum.org/tpow/about.html

Note: Until we have finished moving all of the tPoWs to the
new system, the links to them in Math Tools will point to 
the old software system.
