11 November, 2016 Vol. 21, No. 45 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS PCMI Books and Discounts | A Webinar with Marilyn Burns Teaching Mathematics with Technology MOOC -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PCMI BOOKS AND DISCOUNTS http://bookstore.ams.org/sstp-4/ On Monday, the American Mathematical Society (AMS) published the final volume of a series drawn from a residential summer institute for math teachers. Like the other books in this AMS Teacher Program Series, "Some Applications of Geometric Thinking" advances teacher knowledge via a problem-based approach to learning. Each volume includes a chapter on math concepts, problem sets, and facilitator notes with solutions and practical tips for running a teacher training session. Freely preview 25 pages of "openers" -- alongside important stuff, neat stuff, and tough stuff -- by downloading this PDF (610k): http://bookstore.ams.org/sstp-4/~~FreeAttachments/sstp-4-prev.pdf Through Wednesday, 16 November, save with code SSTPSALE: http://bookstore.ams.org/books-on-sale Members of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) receive a 20% discount from list prices in the AMS bookstore any time. The summer institute that inspired "Some Applications of Geometric Thinking" appeared in these pages just last week, when the Institute for Advanced Study began accepting applications for the 2017 Teacher Leadership Program of the Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI): https://pcmi.ias.edu/application-tlp In addition to the summer snapshots and other materials mentioned in last week's issue, the Math Forum also hosts sixteen years' worth of problem sets from PCMI's Developing Mathematics Course: http://mathforum.org/pcmi/hstp/problemsets.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week "After that, I remembered that I need to keep track of how many hours it takes, so I looked back at the first step." - Tessa, highlighted in the FunPoW's Latest Solution http://mathforum.org/pows/solution.htm?publication=4836 -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- A WEBINAR WITH MARILYN BURNS https://t.co/ZIGAvs4a4C What have five decades in math classrooms taught the author of "About Teaching Mathematics"? Find out Tuesday during a free webinar with Marilyn Burns. Register now for "Developing Students' Numerical Understanding and Skills" by entering some contact information. Then tune in to watch Burns, a recipient of awards from the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) and the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), as she addresses how to - build a teaching bridge between math and reading - learn from one-on-one math interviews - implement effective instructional strategies Education Week hosts this event, thanks to sponsorship by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, publishers of Burns' "Do the Math" program. In the 34 months since one of EdWeek's webinars last appeared in these pages ("The Future of Math Education"), the news organization has hosted nearly 20 others aimed at math teachers, such as - Digging into Mathematical Discourse: Selecting and Sequencing Student Solution Samples - Personalized Learning in Project-Based Math Classrooms - Dynamic vs. Static Assessment: A Growth Mindset Perspective - Closing the Factory: Productive Struggle and the New Math Model - Mastering the Most Challenging Math Standards with Rigorous Instruction - The Language of Math: the Common Core and English-Learners For more on these and other archived webinars, each with PowerPoint presentations freely available for download, visit http://www.edweek.org/ew/webinars/math-webinars.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- Now taking place: math education conversation of the day "Learning about @Bootstrapworld at @swarthmore thanks to @NCTM + @themathforum. Great to combine math and computer science! Awesome workshop!" - Kelly, tweeted to @maxmathforum https://twitter.com/kellydbrandon/status/797080634514669568 -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- TEACHING MATHEMATICS WITH TECHNOLOGY MOOC https://place.fi.ncsu.edu/local/catalog/course.php?id=10 The newest free course from the Math-Ed team at the Friday Institute remains open through Sunday, 1 December -- and it's about using technology to support students' mathematical learning. "Teaching Mathematics with Technology" consists of five self-directed units. They show how to - describe the different affordances of technology to support students' learning of mathematics - critically evaluate and use materials for teaching mathematics with technology and make decisions about appropriate and effective use of mathematics technology - analyze students' learning and thinking about mathematical ideas when students use technology - observe students' work with technology and pose questions that both assesses students' mathematical thinking and develops this thinking as they engage with mathematical tasks - engage students in productive discourse that focuses on important mathematical ideas when using technology-enhanced mathematics tasks Expect to spend three to four hours on each unit's videos, activities, discussion forums, and other digital resources. Teachers who complete the course may receive a Certificate of Completion of professional development from North Carolina State University. Open to all but designed for teachers of grade six and up, "Teaching Mathematics with Technology" requires nothing more than a web browser and Internet connection. And like every Massive Open Online Courses for Educators (MOOC-Eds), first featured in these pages upon their debut three summers ago, there is never a cost for participating. Friday Institute funders and partners include the Alliance for Excellent Education, Google, Lenovo, the Gates Foundation, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Oak Foundation and the Hewlett Foundation. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum at NCTM http://mathforum.org/ Online PD http://mathforum.org/pd/ Online Workshops http://mathforum.org/workshops/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pows/ Powerful Problem Solving http://mathforum.org/pps/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/kb/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Ask Dr. Math Books http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html Facebook https://www.facebook.com/themathforumatnctm/ Blogs http://mathforum.org/blogs/pows/ Twitter Feed http://mathforum.org/pd/twitter.html SEND COMMENTS TO: http://mathforum.org/electronic.newsletter/mfin.faq.html#feedback _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ An archive of all the Math Forum newsletters and directions for subscribing can be found at http://mathforum.org/electronic.newsletter/ |
