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!)
