T2T Lesson Ideas: Mathematics and Elections (25 October 2004)
Classroom resources for studying and explaining the mathematics involved in the election process.
 
SAT Chats at the Math Forum (19 October 2004)
The Math Forum, as part of the Virtual Math Teams project, will experiment with a new type of interactive student problem solving session this fall. These SAT Chats will give students a chance to solve SAT-type problems and discuss their strategies with other students. Students will access the chats via a web page running on the Math Forum's servers, and will need to have java enabled on their computer. If you are interested in participating or learning more about SAT Chats, please contact the VMT team
 
Temple Partnership (October 12, 2004)
Stephen Weimar, Steve Risberg, Claire Mead, Annie Fetter, Cynthia Lanius, and Suzanne Alejandre facilitated four half-day sessions (third, fifth, and eighth grade) using the curricula adopted by the Philadelphia School District, Everyday Mathematics and Math in Context and the online resources that they've been developing aligned to the curricula.
 
In Memoriam, Terrel Trotter, Jr. 1941-2004 (6 October 2004)
Our friend Terry, a teacher at El Salvador's Escuela Americana, joined the Problem of the Week staff in 1999. He created many Algebra Problem of the Week puzzles, and mentored thousands of students who participated in that and other PoW services. We remember him for his passionate teaching and exploration of algebra and number theory.
