Math Forum Exhibit Hall Handouts from NCSM and NCTM

http://mathforum.org/workshops/nctm2010/handouts.html

Did you miss us in the Sponsor Display area at NCSM or the Exhibit Hall at NCTM? Maybe you did find us but you would like additional copies of our handouts? Feel free to access the printed matter (in PDF format) distributed recently at our booths, including information on our Professional Development program and samples from our Problems of the Week program.

Math Forum Ambassadors

http://mathforum.org/workshops/nctm2010/ambassadors.html

Some of the folks joining us in the display area or booth, or presenting with us, were not actually Math Forum or KenKen staff. These are collaborators from around the US and Canada who have been working closely with us in our online workshops, onsite professional development, and online professional development courses. A big thank-you to you all!


Free Mentoring Opportunities

http://mathforum.org/pow/free_mentoring.html

A group of preservice teachers from Western Oregon University will provide feedback to submitters in the following problems:

  • FunPow, opening May 3
  • PreAlgPoW, opening May 10

Please have your students submit solutions. If they receive replies from a mentor, we hope you'll encourage them to revise. Not only will your students learn more, but the mentors will learn as well!

Trial Class Account
