Free Tools from Microsoft

From a guest : Steve Pellowe, WBPS Technology Coordinator

Microsoft research has made available its WorldWide Telescope at no charge. WorldWide Telescope (WWT) enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope, bringing together imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world. Experience narrated guided tours from astronomers and educators featuring interesting places in the sky.

Microsoft has just introduced a free math teaching tool. We can download and install anywhere, students can download it at home. At first glance it appears to be aimed at pre-algebra to calculus but it may have some useful features for grades 4 and 5.

Here is the link to the site:
