Monday 2:15  3:15 Annie Fetter and Stephen Weimar
Using Constructed Response Problems to Enhance Assessment and Increase Students' Connections to Mathematics
 Using Technology and Problem Solving to Build Algebraic Reasoning (21 March, 2008)
 Applications are now open through April 14 for Workshop 8. For an overview of the workshop and more information, view this page.

 Technology Tools for Thinking and Reasoning about Probability (14 March, 2008)
 The first in a series of workshops to investigate some mathematics topics common to middle school curricula within the theme of probability. In this context participants explore the Math Tools digital library and several software tools that contribute in some way to mathematical understanding, problem solving, reflection and discussion.

 PoW: Free Mentoring Opportunity (3 March, 2008)
 Mentor groups will be providing feedback to submitters in Problems of the Week over the next week:
 Math Fundamentals PoW posted 3 March
 Algebra PoW posted 14 April
See more details on the free mentoring page.

 Tools for Building Math Concepts (1 March, 2008)

An online workshop for teachers of grades 35, sponsored by Microsoft Corporation and free to participants. Explore how technology can help students develop fundamental concepts of multiplication, fractions, division and area through the process of generating data and examining patterns. New cohorts are starting regularly, so feel free to register at any time. Drawing on the benefits of software tools and the strength of human pattern recognition, we will explore ways to address misconceptions and related difficulties that students often run into (e.g. multiplication makes bigger, division makes smaller, comparing unlike terms, confusing area and perimeter).

 Math Tools, tPoWs, TINspire and You! (1 March, 2008)
 Suzanne Alejandre and Heidi Rudolph presented a handson session at T^{3} International Conference 2008, about problemsolving uses for the TINspire technology. They introduced the Math Forum's Math Tools, a community library of technology tools, lessons, activities, and support materials for teaching and learning mathematics, and Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs), constructedresponse problems enhanced by using technology as a tool. The TINspire tPoWs that are being developed and fieldtested in Heidi's classroom were also introduced, with a discussion about how we can create more.

February
 Technology Problems of the Week (15 February, 2008)

Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) are problemsolving challenges modeled on the Math Forum's Problems of the Week that take advantage of interactive mathematics tools such as the TINspire^{TM}. Students are invited to use the link "Submit your answer" and then "selfmentor" using specially designed hints, checks, and suggestions for extensions.

TIPoW: Chirp! Chirp!
Use your TINspire to find the temperature when a cricket chirps a certain number of times a minute.
 TIPoW: Sam and Teri's Bank Accounts
Use your TINspire to consider this scenario and question: Sam and Teri have bank accounts. Sam always withdraws money; Teri always saves it. When will they have equal balances  or will they ever?
