Virtual Tool Fest '05 (1 June 2005)
Math Tools will hold a Virtual Math and Technology Tool Fest this summer with the purpose of virtually getting together a group of folks to rate resources, submit resources, write reviews, write stories, seed and participate in discussions, and have virtual presentations of favorite tools and interesting mathematics.

We have gathered a group of stakeholders in mathematics, education, and technology who enjoy collaborating across different school levels and technology interests. As the Tool Fest activities begin on Monday, June 13, we hope that you will join in the discussions! Watch the Math Tools site for updates.
