I work with the MathScape Curriculum Center (based at Education Development Center) whose mission is to support the implementation of the NSF-funded middle school curriculum, MathScape: Seeing and Thinking Mathematicaly. We are currently planning to have one or two sessions for teachers and administrators using MathScape sometime during NCTM, and we are trying to determine whether or not there would be enough interest among NCSM members to hold a similar session during NCSM. These sessions would not be a part of the regular NCSM/NCTM program; they would be held concurrently. We envision these sessions as an opportunity for users of MathScape to get together, share stories, and learn from one another and from the developers of the curriculum. Thus, the sessions are not meant for those who would like more information about MathScape (there will be other opportunities to learn more about the curriculum), but are meant for people who are already using the curriculum.
If you are using MathScape and think you may be interested in attending a session like this, could you please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org? If there is enough interest, we will hold a session during NCSM. Otherwise, if you are attending NCTM, you can attend one of our sessions there. Thanks very much.
