March

MetroMath (29 March 2004)
Stephen Weimar and Suzanne Alejandre presented The Math Forum@Drexel: An Online Math Education Community Center at the Philadelphia launch of MetroMath at The Enterprise Center. MetroMath is a partnership of the University of Pennsylvania, Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick and Newark, the City University of New York (CUNY), the CUNY Graduate Center, and the school districts of Philadelphia, New York City, Newark, and Plainfield (NJ). It was initiated in September 2003 with a grant from the National Science Foundation to become a "Center of Learning and Teaching" focused on mathematics in urban communities.
 
Free Mentoring in Pre-Algebra March 29 - April 25 (24 March 2004)
The Math Forum will have volunteer mentor groups working with students in the Pre-Algebra Problem of the Week for the next two problems (that's four weeks of mentoring!). The problem "Women's Walkway" is accepting submissions March 29 through April 11. The mentor group is from Hope College. The problem "All the Similar Triangles" beginning April 12, will be mentored by a group from California State University, Chico.

February

Radnor Workshop (13 February 2004)
Annie Fetter, Suzanne Alejandre, and the middle school teachers of the Radnor School District discussed ways to use Geometer's Sketchpad and resources from Math Tools to support mathematics instruction. The workshop was held in Radnor, PA.
 
Our First Geometry PoW-Wow (12 February 2004)
We hosted our first Geometry PoW-Wow on Thursday night, February 12. This was an opportunity for students to work together in small groups, using AOL's Instant Messenger, to talk about the next Geometry Problem of the Week. This is the first in what will hopefully be a developing series of opportunities for students to do math collaboratively on the Math Forum site - the students who participated asked if we would be doing it again next week!
