See, in particular: - EXAMINING CURRICULA: a searchable database of curriculum resources; an overview of how to select materials to support improved math teaching and learning; the NCTM Guide for Reviewing School Mathematics Programs; and more http://change.enc.org/change/04exam/ - EXPLORING TEACHER PRACTICE: how teachers work in the classroom; the process of change for school improvement http://change.enc.org/change/02expl/ - IMPROVING STUDENT LEARNING: the TIMSS study, how students performed, and how achievement might be improved http://change.enc.org/change/03impr/ - LEARNING FROM TIMSS - data and reports from the 4th, 8th, and 12th grade studies; Internet resources for TIMSS material; education experts' responses; and strategies for discussing TIMSS with groups of educators http://change.enc.org/change/06lrng/ - RESOURCES FOR CHANGE - existing professional development programs and how to find others; technical assistance providers and math education organizations; an annotated bibliography linked to texts exploring change and professional development; and much more http://change.enc.org/change/05resc/ -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP SERIES - Annenberg/CPB Channel http://www.learner.org/channel/workshops/ From July 1 to August 28, the Annenberg/CPB Channel will broadcast professional development workshops for K-12 math and science teachers. Each series focuses on aspects of improved teaching and learning in math or science, and can be used by any educator interested in improving classroom practice. Series for math teachers include: - Assessment in Math and Science: What's the Point? (K-12 Math and Science) - Looking at Learning (K-12 Math and Science) - Mathematics: What's the Big Idea? (K-8 Math) - The Next Move: Steps Toward Change in Elementary Math and Science (K-5 Math and Science) More workshops: - Principles for Principals (new, for K-12 Administrators) - Private Universe Teacher Workshops (K-12 Science) - The Science of Teaching Science (K-12 Science) All of the workshops are free. Consult your media specialist to find out whether you have the necessary satellite equipment. Some public access cable stations and public television stations offer the Channel's programs to their communities, so if your school does not have the digital equipment you need, check with your local carrier. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- IMAGINARY EXPONENTS AND EULER'S EQUATION Robert L. "Dr. Rob" Ward http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.euler.equation.html What does it mean to have an imaginary exponent? Read about Leonhard Euler's equation, proved two different ways; the equation that involves the five most important constants in mathematics (0, 1, i, pi, and e); and an application.
