The Math Learning Center is primarily geared toward equiping teachers/professors with learning aids to assist teachers in teaching math to students, (thus the name ;-).
I suggest you look at this webpage: http://www.mlc.pdx.edu/HP.Main.html . One of the bullets mentions "printed curriculum guides for the HP 39G, HP 49G, HP 6S, or HP 30S". This may, or may not, be describing the notebook I received. I tend to believe it is NOT the same, as mine is more instructional, versus a classroom lesson-planning resource.
As much as I would like to ask for some of these free materials, I feel I shouldn't (can't) because I'm an engineer, not a paid educator. And, of course, I don't want to ruin a good thing for teachers who can really use these resources (by taking advantage of the offer by asking for these free materials).
On the other hand, I don't think it would hurt to ask if the 49G "Quick Start Guide" notebook (or the items listed at this webpage) can be purchased. One thing I failed to clarify, is that like the HP 49G manual, the material is written from an Algebraic-entry standpoint.
