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

"I like this problem because there are so many ways to solve
it! Especially exciting is the fact that I learned a
new formula...."

- Annie, commenting on the Geometry PoW's latest solution

HOW TO LEARN MATH

http://mathlearning.class.stanford.edu/

Registration opened earlier this week for a new short
intervention course on Stanford University's free
on-line platform.

Designed for teachers of math (K-12) or for other helpers of
students, such as parents, "How to Learn Math" consists of
eight 10 to 15 minute-long sessions intended to change
students' relationships with math.

In addition to videos of Professor of Mathematics Education Jo
Boaler, research ideas, and peer- and self-assessments, her
course includes interviews with students, Udacity's Sebastian
Thrun, Stanford Professor Carol Dweck, and others.

The self-paced course launches Monday, 15 July, and closes
Friday, 27 September.

Boaler, the author of books such as "What's Math Got To Do
With It?," also serves as editor of the research commentary
section of NCTM's Journal for Research in Mathematics
Education (JRME).

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"This has always been an issue for us, as we have two math
teachers in the district. We have always contacted neighboring
districts, who are all in the same boat, and we get together
for an afternoon of grading. Thankfully, due to our small
sizes we don't usually have a lot of tests to grade. Now,
however, we will have to be aware of whose tests we are
grading -- a little more challenging but certainly doable."

- Bruce, posted to the secondary (grades 9-12) discussion
group of the Association of Math Teachers of New York State

http://mathforum.org/kb/message.jspa?messageID=9124361

MATH LITERATURE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STUDENTS

http://www3.cde.ca.gov/reclitlist/search.aspx

Need summer reading suggestions for your students?

The California Department of Education has put together a
Recommended Literature list of contemporary titles for children
and adolescents. The searchable collection of almost eight
thousand titles, many written over the last decade, covers a
broad range of subjects and grade levels to help students meet
the College and Career Readiness (CCR) Anchor Standards and
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics and other
subjects. It also reflects the quality and complexity of texts
students should be reading both at school and outside of the
classroom, as well as rich cultural diversity:

http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/cr/rl/llresources.asp

Works include fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama to
accommodate a variety of tastes, interests, and abilities.

Want more ideas? The Math Forum hosts Mr. Brandenburg's List of
Recommended Books on Math and Science. Annotated and organized
into math and science sub-topics, it features capsule reviews
and reading level ratings:

http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/brandenburg.new.html

Guy Brandenburg used to assign his 8th and 9th grade algebra
and geometry students to read two of these books each year, and
then write reports on them.

Familiar to students of the Math Forum's Ask Dr. Math service
as "Doctor Guy," Brandenburg retired after decades of teaching
math in the public schools of Washington, DC.
