A Workshop on Design of Classroom Lessons in Mathematics from Web-based Materials

The Post CALC Project at Duke University, the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC), and the Math Forum are jointly sponsoring a workshop for high school mathematics teachers interested in creating classroom materials from existing and new Web-based components. The workshop will be held at the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse in Columbus, Ohio, during the week of July 9-13, 2001. It will feature a survey of useful sites, an examination of what makes an effective online lesson, and an opportunity to work in a small group to create sample materials. A discussion site will be created at the Math Forum to allow participants to continue developing the contacts made at the workshop.

  • The workshop will be limited to 20 participants who will be supported by 5 expert facilitators.
  • Participation is restricted to current high school math teachers and exceptional pre-service mathematics teachers who will begin their teaching careers in fall, 2001.
  • Each participant will receive a stipend of $100/day. Local expenses will be paid; a small amount of travel support is also available.
  • An important factor in determining acceptance for the workshop will be classroom experience. Pre-service teachers will need to have their applications supported by e-mail from their supervising teachers or other qualified persons.
  • Experience with the following is desirable, but not essential:
    • HTML
    • a computer algebra system
    • Java
  • Applications are due by April 15; acceptances will be sent by May 1.
