I have been having a good look at what is on your site - and am very interested and impressed by the quality. A very exciting discovery for me - made it worth coming to work today!! (It is school holidays over here in NZ!It is good to know that our work is valuable. More importantly, if reading Anne's note gives you a good feeling about being involved in with this practical hands-on approach to mathematics teaching, then why not share your stories too so that others can benefit in the same way from your enthusiasm.

And also from the email in reference to our sister site Maths300 and printed here with Kristy's permission:

In the News last month we reported on Neville's visit to our Distribution Centre. Now passed, it seemed inappropriate to bury that historic visit in the news files, so the What Is A Task? link now makes three references to the history of Neville's contribution.
Red Squares(My apologies to Kris because it has been almost two months since he offered this problem.)
A rectangle of six squares is to be coloured so that four of the squares are red. In how many ways can this be done? Note: The following two colourings are the same because one can be rotated to make the other.
