math-teach discussion: now moderated

The Math Forum has hosted the math-teach online discussion since its 1995 inception as a mailing list. Over the years, that unmoderated discussion has suffered from increasingly personal attacks and offensive language. To encourage people to read, participate, and recommend the list again, we've recently begun moderating the conversation.

To subscribe to the math-teach mailing list, send email to majordomo@mathforum.org with the phrase "subscribe math-teach" (no quotes) in the body of the message.

As with all the Forum's public discussions, you may also participate in math-teach over the web:


The website lets you track discussion activity of your own choosing. After registering, set your "watches" to track the entire discussion, individual threads from it, or even participating discussants. Located in the left margin of any Forum discussion page next to the small icon of a pair of binoculars, "watches" stay organized in your online profile, in the style of bookmarks. You may receive e-mail notifications of activity in your watches, as well.


Motorola/DOE Math & Science Partnership


Motorola presented a free two-day workshop focused on science and mathematics education in support of the Department of Education's Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative, launched in 2004, as an outgrowth of the No Child Left Behind Act. Presenter teachers gave seminars such as:

  • Patterns to Symbols: Looking into Algebra in Grades 3-6
  • Fractions ... Decimals ... Percents ... Oh My! Creating Cohesive Units of Instruction Using Best Practices for All Students Including LEP Learners (Grades 5-8)
  • Everybody Wins: Reviewing Math Assessments School-Wide (Grades 6-9)
  • Integer Instruction that Works Best Practices for Instruction of Integers for All Students Including LEP Learners (Grades 5-8)

Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative


The Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative was designed by teachers, for teachers, in order to provide technical support, professional development opportunities, and recognition for teachers of all content areas and grade levels.

Research confirms that teachers are the single most important factor in raising student achievement, and the Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative aims to strengthen the U.S. Department of Education's efforts to provide the necessary support for teachers.
