Dear Friend of AMTNYS,

AMTNYS is holding its summer math institute at Wells College in Aurora,
NY this summer. This beautiful rural setting is a great place for a
summer workshop. We hope you will consider getting away from your daily
routine, whether it be the hustle of one of NY*s busy cities or the
endless lawn mowing around your house in the burbs. This is a chance
for you to meet with others in your profession to discuss mathematics
and the teaching of mathematics. It is a time to renew your batteries
and go back home with some great teaching ideas.

Some highlights of the conference:

Keynote Speaker: Greg Tang; Helpful or Harmful, Ten Common Teaching
Practices that Backfire
Banquet Speaker: Jim Matthews; Making Sure All of Our Kids Count

(If you have not heard either of these speakers before, you will not be
disappointed.)

There are more than 80 other sessions and workshops dealing with all of
the following and then some...literature & mathematics, math enrichment
ideas, the newest TI graphing calculator, Geometer Sketchpad, problem
solving techniques, teaching with a interactive whiteboard, math & the
movies and an introduction into the Japanese Lesson Study.

Elementary, middle school, and high school sessions are scheduled at
every time slot.

There are so many good sessions and speakers that I can't list them all
in this small space. More info can be found at www.amtnys.org - the
preliminary program and registration forms are now online there. (The
program is still changing as we are adding more sessions!)
