the Fear from Mathematics
requests for collaboration:
students in Andorra need your help in conducting an environmental
study. They need you to keep track for one week of how much
trash your family throws away. They hope to receive the participation
from a number of countries around the world so that the classes
can make important international comparisons.
teachers of Andorra have created some student worksheets to
the rest of the groups to use these worksheets as well. If
in this project, please write to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
They invite other classes to participate in English or Spanish.
