As an NCTM-L subscriber, I appreciate the fact that the listserv focuses on discussions of issues and I don't necessarily want to see the list turn into a bullletin board for announcements of every shape and kind. I include the announcement below, however, because it incorporates a variety of leading programs that reflect visions of mathematics outlined in the Standards-and is thus may be relevant to the disucssions that occur on NCTM-L.
============================================================================ The 1995 National Summer Institute of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is a non-profit program of UIC's Institute for Mathematics and Science Education dedicated to presenting teachers, math/science curriculum leaders, and teacher educators with an opportunity to learn about some of the country's leading math/science innovations for Grades K-12. This year's Summer Institute includes 20 different workshops in five-day, three-day, two-day, and one-day formats. Workshops on the following programs are included:
Teaching Integrated Mathematics and Science (TIMS) Laboratory Experiments TIMS Elementary Mathematics Curriculum UIC-Maneuvers with Mathematics Project Box-It or Bag-It Mathematics Cognitively Guided Instruction Opening Eyes to Mathematics Math and the Mind's Eye Family Math Leadership Workshops The IMPACT Project: Mathematics and Home and in School Table Top-A Computer Environment for Data Collection and Analysis for Grades 3-8 Microworld's Project Builder: Logo in a Multi-media Environment Cooperative Learning in Mathematics and Science
Interactive Mathematics Project: A New Vision for High School Mathematics T3 Graphing Calculator Workshops for High School Calculus and Precalculus Teachers Park City/IAS Geometry Institute: Reshaping High School Geometry Function Probe: Multi-representational Software for Problem Solving Cooperative Learning in High School Mathematics
