          GETTING READY FOR THE NATIONAL MATH FESTIVAL

           https://rendezvousdc.formstack.com/forms/
national_math_festival_volunteers Math lovers, your help is needed at the National Math Festival! This free annual event brings together some of the most fascinating mathematicians of our time to inspire and challenge participants to see math in new and exciting ways. The festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 22, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Volunteers, who play a crucial role in the setup and execution of events, are needed to welcome guests, provide hands-on support for presenters, and serve as festival booth ambassadors. First featured here in its inaugural year, the National Math Festival invites volunteers to please sign up by March 31. The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) has printed 5 in. x 7 in. postcards that promote the festival: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/
0B-4zGRBQCb-OWUd3YW03aDVoN1k To request a set of postcards for distribution at schools and community organizations primarily in the Washington, D.C. region, please contact Jennifer Murawski, MSRI communications and events coordinator, at jmurawski@msri.org. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- Now taking place: Math education conversation of the day "I like this. A very mathematical take. Hey, you should teach math!" - Andrew, tweeted to @MFAnnie during #SwDMathChat https://twitter.com/bkdidact/status/845082590814097408 -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CRITICAL ISSUES IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION https://www.msri.org/workshops/836 What does it mean to create an equitable classroom environment? Last weekend, MSRI convened a three-day workshop entitled "Critical Issues in Mathematics Education 2017: Observing for Access, Power, and Participation in Mathematics Classrooms as a Strategy to Improve Mathematics Teaching and Learning." MSRI has already posted video of all four plenaries, half a dozen other sessions from the workshop, and a pretaped address by the Honorable Barbara Lee: https://www.msri.org/workshops/836/schedules Click the square blue filmstrip icons to freely watch uncut clips -- complete with presentation slides and audience participation -- of sessions such as "I DO (NOT) Belong: Experiences of Black Women and Girls in Mathematics Education" and "Opening the Gateway to STEM Disciplines: What Have We Learned from the Arlington Emerging Scholars Program in Calculus?" The next two CIME workshops will focus on providing access to quality mathematics education for all. Papers from past years of this annual workshop series are available from MSRI's library of the CIME Booklet Series: http://library.msri.org/cime/index.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- 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/
