Common Core Standards Draft
http://www.corestandards.org/
As part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI),
the draft K12 standards are now available for public comment.
Provide your feedback on the mathematics standards, the English
language arts standards, or both via CCSSI's online survey by
Friday, April 2.
Math Teachers' Circle Workshops
http://www.mathteacherscircle.org/
The Math Teachers' Circle is a professional development
opportunity that connects middle school math teachers with
mathematicians to work together on mathematical problem
solving in the context of rich mathematics problems.
The Math Teachers' Circle Network will have a special session
at the 2010 NCTM Annual Meeting on the afternoon of Wednesday,
April 21. And applications are now open for their summer "How to Run a Math Teachers' Circle" workshops, offered
June 28July 2 in Palo Alto, CA, and July 2630 in Washington,
DC. Those opportunities introduce teams of middle school teachers
and mathematicians to the idea of Math Teachers' Circles, and
show how to develop a plan for starting and sustaining them.
The application deadline for both workshops is April 1.
