The Math Forum VMT Spring Fest 2006 was held in May and June of 2006.

A number of groups participated from the US, Singapore and Scotland. Each team met online for four hour-long sessions to discuss patterns. Team B tied for first place, winning iPods for all members.

The topic for the Spring Fest is available at: [topic.doc] The topic page includes links to three wiki pages that were used by the teams to share their findings: [wiki rows], [wiki patterns], [wiki problem ideas].

A spreadsheet containing a chat log of Team B's sessions is available at: [teamb.xls] or: [teamb_new.xls] The spreadsheet includes a column for you to add comments. The spreadsheet is formatted for printing.

[teamb_columns.xls] This spreadsheet includes a column for each participant and posting start/stop times. The spreadsheet is formatted for printing (92 pages long).

Other spreadsheets containing the chat log of Team B's sessions can be made by reading-in these html files: [teamb_column.html] [teamb_list.html]
