Got a math or science question?

by Stephanie Chasteen on September 15, 2009

You can ask it at the following address, and get a customized reply from an expert in the field!  Pretty cool service — I’ve served as an expert answerer at least once.  If you’re a new teacher or an experienced one, it’s nice to have a go-to place for your burning questions.  Besides, if you’re trying anything vaguely inquiry-oriented, you’ll find that you get questions you don’t know how to answer.  What a great way to model the idea that you don’t have to know all the answers, you just have to know where to find out!
