Making Mathematics Meaningful
Friday, July 20
Program Committee Report:
Dave K. reported that a special M3 directory has been set up on the computers in the computer lab, so that all can make changes to others documents if necessary (save as: M3 directory).
Subgroups reported as follows:
Web sites: Everyone in this subgroup will save their list of web sites on the M3 directory and Lynette will consolidate them on Sunday.
MTRN: David passed out a draft of the criteria and questions for MTRN along with a copy with Shellys ideas related to the draft. A short article was also passed out as a test of the criteria and questions. We worked through these questions as they relate to this article and we agreed that it would be a nice article to use in the high school classroom. Modifications to the criteria and questions were suggested and changes will be made by the MTRN subgroup and presented next week.
INTRO: Dori shared that the intro page will have an animated picture at the top and then read their synopsis (draft form).
We then decided to move to our "circle within a circle" activity of sharing lesson plan ideas that weve used in our classrooms.
We discussed our agenda for next week including putting together a Power-Point presentation for Friday and practicing our presentation next Thursday.
