VALUING AS THE KEY TO UNSILENCING

http://mathforum.org/articles/ncsm.spring2013.news.html

"At the heart of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
Initiative is the valued learner, a learner with an active
voice in his/her own learning."

So writes the Forum's Director of Professional Development in
one of her latest publications -- this one, appearing in the
spring, 2013 newsletter of the National Council of Supervisors
of Mathematics (NCSM).

Before closing with a selection of online resources, "Valuing
as the Key to Unsilencing" offers paragraphs on

- The Importance of Valuing
- I Notice/I Wonder Classroom Activity
- I Notice/I Wonder Professional Development Activity
- Moving from Checklists to Problem Solving
and Perseverance

This article joins several others written by Suzanne, who has
just collected them on her blog:

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

"It's so much fun to read all your submissions when there are
so many ways to tackle a problem! Let's take a look at some of
the methods that students used.... Will M. of West Mercer
Elementary School has almost written his answer in the form of
a 'T-Chart,' where you write what you did, as in calculations,
on one side of the chart, and on the other you write what you
thought, as in why you knew each calculation was a good idea.
I am slightly partial to Will's method because that's exactly
how I solved it!"

SUMMER PROBLEMS OF THE WEEK

http://mathforum.org/pows/

While we get ready for another series of Problems of the Week
(PoWs) starting at the end of August, we'll scale back our
responses. But every two weeks from now until then, the Math
Forum will continue to post challenging word problems and
accept solutions to them.

Over the course of the recently concluded 2012-2013 academic
year, we posted a total of 120 Current PoWs, each with its own
supporting resources -- a great starting point for designing
your own summer projects. If you have a Full PoW membership,
or access through your school or district, help yourself to the
Library Problems. For starters, we've highlighted a seasonal
selection in these pages before:

http://mathforum.org/electronic.newsletter/mf.intnews14.20.html

Want to get in on the fun, but don't have an account yet? A
Current PoW membership provides access to this academic year's
complete set, as well as the summer PoWs through mid-August,
and then all of the puzzles coming next year -- quite a bargain
for upwards of 275 PoWs, their teacher packets, rubrics, and
other supporting resources!

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"Depending on one's definition of 'edge,' your suggested
construction results in at least a cylinder or Mobius strip."
