"L. Prevett has put the current Table of Contents and the Preliminaries section of the Math Teachers Guide on line. He says:
Most of our discussion has focused on Linux as an inexpensive and viable alternative to existing solutions to math ed software. In addition to covering all that, I decided to 'up the ante' and push Linux as an operating system that is also capable of 'state of the art' applications. I was surprised to find out how many schools are already doing this. I think this is really one of the strong points for using Linux.""David Moore reports that AUC version 0.7.0 is finished. There are a lot of new features in this release."
"We had a lively discussion on cafeteria management software where Ryan Booz laid out the requirements for his school. In his words:
The cafeteria would like to have a screen (individual buttons I'm thinking) that allows them to select what the student bought (lunch, candy bar, milk, etc.). At the end of the day, the will need to print out how many lunches sold (regular, reduced, free) and the other stuff. Of course this would keep a balance in each student account then."
