Implementing the Math Forum's Problems of the Week in Trenton, NJ (27 June, 2007)
Gail Robinson and Annie Fetter represented the Trenton MATRIX grant at the 2007 National Educational Computing Conference, held this year in Atlanta.
Summer Problems of the Week (1 June 2007)
Math Fundamentals PoW and Algebra PoW will post new summer problems starting June 11. Pre-Algebra and Geometry summer PoWs will debut on June 4. Check the Summer 2006 Calendar for each of our PoW services:
        Math Fundamentals
We encourage teachers with class, school, or district subscriptions to take this opportunity to have their students do math all summer. Design and assign summer projects using the Current Problems or from a selection from the Active Problem Library. We will have only a few volunteers doing mentoring; and our responses will otherwise be scaled back.


The MathMentor (27 May, 2007)
The Math Forum @ Drexel is offering the MathMentor, an online mentoring program that is designed to expand the students' career aspirations and help them to develop interest in math, science and technology. The MathMentor is sponsored by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation and will include a limited number of 200 high-achieving, low-income students. Application information is available at the bottom of this page.
