The Center for Professional Development and Education Reform at the Warner School of Education at the University of Rochester, in partnership with Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES, is offering a Connected Math (CMP) Users’ conference for teachers, teacher leaders, math coaches, and administrators to come together to learn, share ideas, and gain new insights from fellow CMP teachers from the region.
Amy Klco, a Michigan CMP teacher, came up with an idea to help her struggling students understand mathematics by making the problems literally come to life. She took abstract concepts and made them something her students could touch and feel.
Thomas Grubb is a wicked smart Dean's Research Scholar senior majoring in mathematics. The sessions he speaks of are training sessions for a ridiculously hard and prestigious math test, the Putnam Competition.
George Pappas also loves math. A professor of mathematics, he says, “It’s fun to think about this stuff.” I can honestly say I’ve never considered math fun, but I’m really glad he does. Read his FACULTY VOICE: By the numbers, to learn more about leading-edge research.
The Program in Mathematics Education (PRIME) at Michigan State University is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate. This position will provide a qualified candidate with the opportunity to play a major role in two NSF-funded projects.
CMP has received a second NSF grant focusing on how the use of open-ended problems and "just-in-time" supports in a digital platform can promote inquiry-based mathematics learning.
