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

"This problem was one of those where the answer is staring you
in the face but you just can't see it. The key to this problem
lies in the triangle conjecture. However, to get to this point
you must first follow several pre-courser steps."

- Parker, highlighted in the Geometry PoW's Latest Solution

SUMMER WORKSHOPS FOR MATH TEACHERS

http://www.CenterForInnovativeTeaching.org/

The Center for Innovative Teaching has announced its summer
weekend workshops. Taking place at the Urban School of San
Francisco and at Chapin School, in New York, math
offerings include

- Visual Algebra: greater access, greater challenge, and
greater variety -- by using blocks or tiles, geoboards,
function diagrams, and technology
- Re-imagining High School Math: pedagogy, learning tools,
curriculum, assessment, the long period, heterogeneous
classes, deceleration, teacher collaboration
- Hands-On Geometry: kinesthetics, pattern blocks, geoboards,
puzzles, technology, construction, transformations,
authentic approach to proof
- No Limits: visual introduction to functions, iteration,
series, mathematical induction, chaos, and complex numbers;
geometry of parabolas

A limited number of public school teachers get their
registration fees waived -- first come, first served.
