A Workshop on Design of Classroom Lessons in
Mathematics from Web-based Materials
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,
- 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
- Experience with the following is desirable, but not
- a computer algebra system
- Applications are due by April 15; acceptances will be
sent by May 1.
