          PARK CITY MATHEMATICS INSTITUTE, SUMMER 2017

            http://mathforum.org/pcmi/hstp/sum2017/

 The 2017 Summer Session of the IAS/Park City Mathematics
 Institute (PCMI) concluded last week in Utah. More than sixty
 teachers from across the United States participated in PCMI's
 three-week Teacher Leadership Program (TLP), which consisted of
 three strands:

    - Math Course: Recursion and Matrices
    - Reflecting on Practice: Making Inquiry a Core
      Teaching Practice
    - Working Groups on the math course, on lesson study, and on
      standards for mathematical proficiency

 For all the problem sets, observations, and PowerPoint
 presentations from TLP 2017, check out the class notes:

 This year's institute vastly expanded PCMI's YouTube channel,
 which now boasts more than a hundred videos of new lectures by
 Persi Diaconis, Sylvia Serfaty, Terence Tao, and other
 leading mathematicians:

 The sixteen clips in the TLP playlist include an extended
 presentation by NCTM President-Elect Robert Q. Berry, III:

                             FACTRIS

                    http://mei.org.uk/factris

 Free beta versions of a factoring game modeled on Tetris
 recently launched for Android and Apple smartphones
 and tablets.

 To play Factris, resize the falling rectangles according to
 their factors. Pack them together strategically to win
 points and free up space for subsequent rectangles.

 Factris creator Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) is
 an independent charity committed to improving mathematics
 education. The UK curriculum development body freely offers
 this game in the Google Play and iTunes stores; respectively,
