Math and Business Resource for Kids

My son, Chase, has been falling a little behind in math. His teacher has assigned him some extra credit to get some practice and bring his grades up a bit. Anyway, we just wanted to say thank you for your helpful math references on your page.
Chase wanted to share with you this math guide that he found on someone's math blog....
He'd also love if you could share it on your page.... Chase's Mom

Math and business activities for young entrepreneurs

I just wanted to shoot you a quick email to say thanks. I'm a youth mentor, and one of my mentees (Mark) was in summer school for math this summer...... Your page was a great help to him so we wanted to let you know how much he appreciated it.
As a thank you, Mark suggested that I pass along another guide that helped him a lot.... Amy Carr

Kids' Computer Basics: Keyboarding

..... a website that I noticed you didn't have. Can you add this keyboarding reference guide to your list as well? It's an easy to read reference that helped me...thought you might be interested. :) ...I would love to make a contribution that could help others struggling! I think my friends at my school's STEM club would be pretty impressed to see it up too. We meet every Friday after school and I would love to show them! ...Sincerely, Joann

Your Keyboarding page ... was perfect in helping me find typing / keyboarding practice sites! ... Thank you so much for your efforts in putting this page together... After Natalie started playing a few of the games / lessons, she started to get really excited about practicing and took it upon herself (with her Dad) to find a page with a bunch of cool typing practice games!

My 2001 Technology Classroom

Students typed HTML code to build web pages and
searched the Internet for hyperlinks.

[1989 invention: (HTML) and (URL)
created by Tim Berners-Lee


Students snapped digital photos on a Sony Mavica
and uploaded their floppy disks onto the PC
as images on their web pages.


Students were limited to a 3-minute
movie project due to memory limitations on the IMac_G3.


To take home their movie project,
students transfered their work via a
digital camcorder to an anology VHS cassette


Growing up with new technology....

My first cellphone...
was called a mobile phone .


My first copy machine was called a mimeograph
