Accommodations: A block of rooms is on hold at the Huntsville Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites. Please call the hotel at (936) 295-4300 to reserve your room by September 19. Please mention the SHSU Math Department when making your reservation. The rate for Thursday night will be $85, plus applicable taxes. Please remember to bring your state tax exempt form, and keep a copy of your hotel receipt - showing a balance of zero - so that we can process your reimbursement.

For directions to the hotel, go to http://tinyurl.com/2010merit, click the blue icon, and select ÒDirectionsÓ. (For some unknown reason, the Holiday Inn website directs you to an empty field south of town.)

Spread the Word: If you have a colleague at your institution or know of a faculty member outside your institution that is also engaged in mathematics education research and might be interested in attending, please contact Mary Swarthout (swarthout AT shsu edu) so that we can determine if there is available funding and space for additional participants at this year’s conference.
