CRITICAL ISSUES IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION 2014

https://www.msri.org/workshops/732

What mathematics should teachers know?

How should they come to know this mathematics?

In California late last month, the Mathematical Sciences
Research Institute (MSRI) convened a three-day workshop to
consider these questions. "Critical Issues in Mathematics
Education 2014: The role of the mathematics department in the
mathematical preparation of teachers" brought together
professors, teachers, and leaders such as

- Deborah Ball, University of Michigan
- Hyman Bass, University of Michigan
- Gail Burrill, Michigan State University
- Joan Ferrini-Mundy, National Science Foundation (NSF)
- Linda Gojak, National Council of Teachers of
Mathematics (NCTM)
- Stefanie Hassan, Little Lake (CA) School District
- Allison Krasnow, Berkeley Unified School District
- Andrea LaGala Lamb, Waltham (MA) Public Schools
- W. Gary Martin, Auburn University
- William McCallum, University of Arizona
- Breedeen Murray, The Bay School of San Francisco
- Darryl Yong, Harvey Mudd College

Video of all 11 plenaries and a half-dozen other sessions from
the workshop recently came online:

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

"Justin K. from Birch Wathen Lenox School solved the original
problem and the Extra using algebra. I think it's neat that he
made a table -- that was a popular way to approach the Extra,
and similar to how Mason started out looking for patterns."

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

Butler-Cooley Excellence in Teaching Award.

Now entering its tenth year, this program has honored those
"who have demonstrated their capacity to change the outcome of
students' lives and the communities where they teach." It
awards two teachers $5,000 cash prizes, plus travel and lodging
expenses to TMA's Annual Convention, taking place
29 September - 1 October in Toronto.

The Butler-Cooley Excellence in Teaching Award program, made
possible through the John William Butler Foundation, is open to
currently licensed, active teachers employed by accredited
schools for at least five years. Download the entry form and

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"Then consider that a warmup. Now for the 3D version ... I
haven't tried it -- it looks formidable."

MPI ESSAY SERIES

https://mpi.edc.org/blog/mpi-essay-series

Earlier this week, the Mathematical Practice Institute (MPI)
kicked off a new essay series -- and yesterday, it posted its
first free download.

"Perseverance: Salvaging the Germ of an Idea," recounts an
investigation into the exact value for the sine of 15 degrees,
as conducted by a group of high school teachers:

We first featured MPI's blog when it launched three months ago.
Check back weekly for more essays that show how mathematical
practice can be used in high school:
