## Warm greetings from Mexico

 Hi Cecil , I'm your WikiNeighbour.I see you are planning to add some math notation, it's the perfect moment to start using the powerful $\mathrm{L\!\!^{{}_{\scriptstyle A}} \!\!\!\!\!\;\; T\!_{\displaystyle E} \! X} \,$ codes in order to render clear & good looking formulas like this one: $x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$. Seems familiar to you? Absolutely. 1. First of all, you will need a cheat sheet where you will find codes of the most common math symbols. Click here for Help:Displaying Special Characters 2 I'm also working in the creation of a comprehensive collection of $\mathrm{L\!\!^{{}_{\scriptstyle A}} \!\!\!\!\!\;\; T\!_{\displaystyle E} \! X} \,$ symbology help page: Help:LaTeX_Symbol_Tables. This job is still in progress, please visit the project, I'd love you hear your suggestions and, If you wish, join me! 3. Practice the codes in your Sandbox. Once you feel confident, you may want to learn more. Great! look around some of the thousands of pages we have in WE, if you find $\mathrm{L\!\!^{{}_{\scriptstyle A}} \!\!\!\!\!\;\; T\!_{\displaystyle E} \! X} \,$ symbols, switch the page to edit mode and study the codes. Copy and paste them in your sandbox, we always learn from others, that's the wiki way. 4. I highly recommend you to visit the Content page, where you will find most of the current projects we are developing in WikiEducator. Click on the Math or Physics Projects, you will find more pages with math symbols to learn from. Click here for more projects. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Just drop me a message in my Talk Page or Reply this message. I will come back. Have fun while learning. Gladys Gahona. --chela5808 01:26, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Very Informative. I would make an effort to develop some workshops with your help from the Ministry.

Hi Ruth,

The workshops are going fine. We eventually got the extra half day at the Anglican High School. In fact they even wanted us to use the entire week. We eventually had to go to Wesley College which is more equipped to accommodate a larger group.

The participants demonstrated great interest and most of them caught the skills quickly.

I hope that you get the chance to have the workshop with your institution.

Cecil.

## Curriculum index

Hi Cecil,

You and your curriculum officers may be interested in the Curriculum index project.

Hi Cecil,

So I don't forget, I want to chat with you on Wednesday about the additional workshops that you mentioned the other day.

When I came to your user page I noticed that you are interested in Mathematics and Multimedia simulations. I have created some lessons that you might find interesting. The simulations were created by Physics Education Technology Team at the University of Colorado. They are now expanding into the other sciences and mathematics.

Have you seen these Math resource projects in the wiki? Math_Tables_and_Formulas and MathGloss

Hi Robert, Thanks for the references re the resource projects. I have scanned through them. They are helpful in geting me started on my desired goal.

I think this feature is similar to msn chat. Our teachers would certainly enjoy using a feature like this to communicate.

Therefore, when we return to Grenada we need to organise about two workshops to educate primary, tertiary and secondary teachers in the wiki environment. Bye!!Bye!!
