SPEAK AT TWITTER MATH CAMP 2013

http://www.twittermathcamp.com/tmc13/tmc13-speaker-proposal/

Twitter Math Camp 2013 (#TMC13) seeks speakers to address these
topics at its second gathering, later this summer:

- rich tasks: developing them, pushing student thinking
- project-based/problem-based learning
- productive struggling
- how to appropriately scaffold (rich) tasks
- intervention: what to do when students just don't get it

Billing itself as "guerrilla professional development for math
teachers," TMC13 "isn't a conference about how to use blogs or
Twitter or social media in the classroom. It isn't even how to
teach teachers to use social media to connect with each other.
And it isn't centered around technology. It's really designed
for math teachers in the classroom who are looking to become
better, and who use the internets to talk about it and share
resources and get better."

See more speaker topics that came out of TMC's session survey,
then submit your proposal by this coming Monday, 8 April.

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

"When I used Google to find out what else might weigh 65 tons
that a Max-with-the-strength of a beetle could lift, I found
some pretty gross stuff. Isn't math great for helping you
think about the world in crazy ways?"

- Max, commenting on the Pre-Algebra PoW's Latest Solution

MATHLANDING'S PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COLLECTIONS

http://www.mathlanding.org/collections/pd_collection

Mathlanding has recently released collections of skill- and
knowledge-building resources around Common Core State Standards
(CCSS) for Mathematical Practices 7 and 8:

- Look for and make use of structure
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

Every Mathlanding collection includes lessons, videos, teaching
supports, and journal articles, each carefully selected from
the hundreds of resources available in its curated catalog.

Mathlanding is a project of Maryland Public Television (MPT),
the Math Forum @ Drexel, International Society for Technology
in Education (ISTE), and the National Service for Distributed
Learning (NSDL).

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"Karen Cowe wrote, 'This will be the last Ignite! for me, so
it would be great to finally get you up there!' There were
about 400 in Merrill Hall where it's held in Asilomar. Even
the balcony seating was full. As Ruth Parker said to me, she
can't remember putting that much prep time into something that
only lasts 5 minutes! Now I have proof that I actually
did it...."
