to give you an overview of The Math Forum;

to present a sample of the activities we have used with teachers; and

to discuss ways you can take advantage of the Math Forum's services.Our tour begins with a visit to the Math Forum home page. From here you can access the Student Center, Teachers Place. You can also visit What's New to see the latest additions to our site.
