Developing Powerful Problem Solvers
Rosenthal Prize for Innovation in Math Teaching
Webinar on Common Core Mathematics

DEVELOPING POWERFUL PROBLEM SOLVERS

http://mathforum.org/pd/pps/

Developing Powerful Problem Solvers will kick off Thursday,
1 May, for teachers of grades 3-8. This moderated course will
make use of our book, Powerful Problem Solving, and the growing
collection of classroom videos, student handouts, and resources
from its companion website:

http://mathforum.org/pps/

Led by author Max Ray, we'll read a chapter of his book each
week, watch selected video clips, and look at student work.
Check the outline for how the 20 hours of expected seat-work
break down, then register here:

http://mathforum.org/pd/pps/register.html

All individuals who successfully complete this online course
will receive a certificate indicating that they have completed
20 hours of professional development. This is equivalent to 2.0
Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

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

"I know I am correct because I drew a picture and counted the
number on each ring, added them, then subtracted one by one. By
subtracting I know my adding is correct."

- Annie, highlighted in the Pre-Algebra PoW's Latest Solution

ROSENTHAL PRIZE FOR INNOVATION IN MATH TEACHING

http://rosenthalprize.momath.org/

Got an exceptional math activity to share? The Museum of
Mathematics (MoMath) wants to know -- and award its author a
\$25,000 cash prize.

North America's only museum devoted to math describes the
winning activity of the Rosenthal Prize for Innovation in Math
Teaching as

- innovative
- engaging
- hands-on
- original
- replicable
- designed for students in grades four through eight

Goldthorp's "Hands-On Data Analysis" and Patrick Honner's
"Sphere Dressing," then apply before the deadline of Friday,
9 May:

https://in.momath.org/rosenthalprize/

New this year: a workshop, staffed by experienced judges, to
improve your application. Register to attend online, via a
live stream, or in person, at the museum -- across 5th Avenue
from Madison Square Park in New York City:

https://in.momath.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=218

A not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization first featured in these
pages during the construction of its 19,000 square foot space
three years ago, MoMath strives to enhance public understanding
and perception of mathematics.

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"To verify that there in fact would be no gaps even in 3D,
between neighbouring pipes, I undertook 3D printing."

WEBINAR ON COMMON CORE MATHEMATICS

In a couple of Tuesdays, the Stanford Center for Professional
Development will host a free webinar that takes recent research
on the brain and math learning and translates it into
strategies to help students engage with Common Core State
Standards (CCSS) mathematics and help teachers prepare for
CCSS teaching.

Stanford University Professor of Mathematics Education Jo
Boaler, first featured in these pages almost a decade ago,
hosts the hour-long "Common Core Mathematics: Key Teaching and
Learning Strategies" on 6 May. To register, scroll to the
bottom of the course page, select the gray tab for "Live
Webinar" and then "XEDUC001 - 002" before clicking the button
labeled "Enroll in this Section."
