2nd Pre-Conference TSM Workshop
Thursday 21st November 2002
9:30am - 4:15pm

Following last year's acclaimed workshop at the British School in The Hague, TSM returns for another hands-on day before the 2002 ECIS Conference in Berlin, led by a distinguished team of trainers from the UK and Austria.

There will be workshops on Word, Excel, The Internet, Geometer's Sketchpad, and Autograph. This year there will be a new section covering the important area of CAS (Computer Algebra Systems) and we are lucky to have Marlene Torress-Skoumal with us from the Vienna International School.

WELCOME to 33 Teachers from 11 countries!
