2012 MATHEMATICS GAME

http://mathforum.org/yeargames/

The year game puzzle is back to challenge students in grades
3-12 to write expressions for each of the counting numbers 1
through 100, using the digits in the year 2012, standard
operations, and grouping symbols.

Students may start submitting solutions January 1, 2012.

Revisit the site after February 1, 2012, to see the
first solutions.

PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week

"The kids wondered how the family measured the tree and what
kind of tool they used to measure. That was a nice way I was
also able to tie measurement and what tools we use to measure
and why into the discussion. When we did 'I notice,' they were
able to come up with the counting by 2's pattern. I was
wondering if they would see it, because we haven't worked on
that much. Surprisingly, just in our first day discussion they

PRESENTATION, WORKSHOPS FROM THE CENTER FOR INNOVATIVE TEACHING

The Center for Innovative Teaching (CIT) at The Urban School of
San Francisco presents Dan Meyer at 3 PM PT (6 PM ET) on
Wednesday, 11 January, 2012.

In his talk, entitled "Capturing, Sharing and Resolving
Perplexity," the Stanford University doctoral candidate will
describe perplexity -- "one of the scarcest resources in the
classroom." Meyer will show educators why perplexity is key to
engaging students in the classroom, and how to pick tools and
technology to maximize it.

Register now for this free, one hour-long presentation, geared
to secondary school educators in all disciplines:

CIT has also just pre-announced its seventh set of summer
workshops, which will include these three presented by director
Henri Picciotto:

Hands-On Geometry

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"I'm wanting my students to read/review an article that they
will be able to identify the key ideas of data collection
(sampling tech/obs study/exper design). My challenge is
identifying resources they can access/reference to obtain these
articles. Everything I find is too complex. Any suggestions on
resources that high school students can read and make sense of?"
