Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants (DMEG)
http://www.maa.org/dolciani/
The Mathematical Association of America (MAA), through funding
from the Mary P. Dolciani Halloran Foundation, is pleased to
announce a new grant program for mathematical enrichment
programs for talented high school and middle school students.
 one year grants, renewable to three years
 up to $6000
 a college or university math faculty member must serve as
project director
 projects center on enrichment and extension activities for
students
 projects should encourage students' interest in high school
and college mathematical studies, and increase their
preparedness for those studies
Deadline for proposals is 15 April.
Math Art Activities
http://www.mathactivities.net/
Zachary J. Brewer offers supplementary art activities for
grades 24, intended to help teachers introduce, reinforce, or
expand on the topics they teach.
Read the book's introduction, see a list of activities (with
pictures of the projects), read their learning objectives and
NCTM standards alignments, or find purchase information for the
book.
Summer Workshops for Math Teachers
http://www.mathedpage.org/cit/
The Center for Innovative Teaching at the Urban School of San
Francisco presents three summer workshops for math teachers.
July 1922, 2010: Visual Algebra (with Henri Picciotto)
Make algebra more accessible, richer and more fun through
visual approaches, including Lab Gear, geoboards, function
diagrams, and intelligent use of technology. Learn three
distinct visual paths to the quadratic formula. (This workshop
will also be offered June 2225 near Washington, DC.)
July 23, 2010: To the Third Dimension with Cabri 3D! (with
Kate Mackrell)
Learn from a Cabri 3D expert how to use this dynamic geometry
program and how to integrate it into your classes.
July 2627, 2010: HandsOn Geometry (with Henri Picciotto)
Use manipulatives (geoboard, circle geoboard, pattern blocks,
and various geometric puzzles) to liven up your geometry
class. Learn a highly challenging and motivational
computeraided construction unit, and how to introduce proof in an
authentic and meaningful way.
For time, place, registration, and logistics information, see
http://www.CenterForInnovativeTeaching.org/
The CIT will also offer workshops in other disciplines, and a
symposium for school leaders on integrating technology and
education. Recruit a colleague from your school to save both
of you 5% off the registration fees.
