For Educators

Bucknell University – Elementary Survey

.

Florida K-5 math teachers are invited to complete a short survey, as part of a research project at Bucknell University, about where and how elementary teachers select mathematics activities from online sources. Please only fill out the survey if you are an K-5 mathematics teacher and please feel free to share this link with your colleagues. The survey will also ask you to provide a math activity that you have found from a website in link and pdf form.  Thank you for your participation.

Scaling the Teaching Curve:
A PCMI Teacher Leadership Program Weekend Experience
Free Teacher-Led Professional Development for Mathematics Teachers

Experience the IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute’s (PCMI) Teacher Leadership Program (TLP) during the academic year. Enjoy a weekend workshop where you will do mathematics, think about teaching, and share in professional development activities.

March 2-3, 2019

Hyatt Place Lake Mary/Orlando North
1255 S International Parkway, Lake Mary, FL 32746

Middle school and high school math teachers are invited. Enrollment is limited and first come, first served, so register now! There is no registration fee. Preference will be given to teachers new to the IAS/PCMI Teacher Leadership Program. TLP past participants are eligible for the Weekend Experience if they register along with a colleague who has not participated in the TLP before. PCMI will provide overnight accommodations for those with difficult commutes to and from the workshop.

Doing Mathematics
Participants will exercise mathematical habits of mind such as exploring mathematical ideas, uncovering relations, and discovering patterns. Come enjoy well crafted, low ceiling high threshold tasks working with colleagues; don’t expect lectures! Renew your passion for
mathematics by learning new material in an engaging and collaborative environment.

Reflecting on Practice
Teaching consists of many moving parts including choosing tasks, managing discussions, providing feedback, and motivating students to learn. In these sessions, participants will deeply consider aspects of teaching informed by recent research and classroom case studies, always grounded in mathematics content. Work collaboratively with colleagues to explore how to better enable your students to grow as mathematics learners.

Teaching is Problem Solving

Teaching Is Problem Solving is a new site dedicated to sharing ideas about teaching with a focus on mathematics. 

 

For now, you’ll find videos about children’s early understanding of number in the Concepts Videos section. You’ll also find stories about teachers learning and discussing student thinking as well as engaging in formative assessment and lesson study in the What’s Next? Stories section. Examples of student thinking abound in both sections. 

 

The site will be growing quickly over the 2017 year. If you want to know when new material arrives, be sure to sign up on our website to receive notifications of new content and resources.

In support of our core mission of developing stronger teachers to increase student learning and transform education, Mount Holyoke College is offering scholarships for educators that enroll in our Master of Arts in Teacher Leadership program or our Master of Arts in Mathematics Teaching program starting in the summer of 2017. Details and links to each program can be found below.  

Our graduate programs are designed for working educators so they can balance life, career, and family responsibilities while pursuing a graduate degree. Participants can attend class sessions on campus or via videoconference from the comfort of their own homes.

In addition to our scholarships, qualifying educators may also be eligible for the federal TEACH Grant for up to $8,000.

The Number Stories project is a collection of dynamic mathematics activities organized in a searchable online platform. All the activities are based on real-world contexts. The problems are designed to motivate the use of mathematics to solve problems in various professional or other everyday life situations. Number Stories support individual users with targeted feedback and are useful in many situations such as home-schooling, vocational training, or to enrich classroom mathematics.

For more information, please go to http://numberstories.cemseprojects.org/ or send an email to: numberstories@cemseprojects.org.
