What Catalyzing Change Means to Me (sponsored by NSF/PAEMST)
Presented by Ralph Pantozzi , Natalie Johnson and Dr. Robert Mayes
Join two Presidential Awardees of Mathematics and Science Teaching as they discuss the importance of quantitative literacy and critical thinking processes needed for high school students to make wise decisions in their personal lives. They’ll address topics like,
- The importance of quantitative reasoning,
- How these mathematical practices align with common core,
- Broadening the purposes of school mathematics, and
- Obstacles that prevent math from working for all students, and how teachers can remove them.
Ultimately, we want all of our students to share our appreciation for the beauty and usefulness of mathematics and statistics and see themselves as capable lifelong learners. We will take the time to show you how!
Oct 12, 2021 08:00 PM : MTLT Journal Club Kick-off Meeting
Join the kick-off meeting of the MTLT Journal Club on Tuesday, October 12 at 8 p.m. (EDT) as we revisit the article “Speaking Up and Speaking Out about Gender in Mathematics,” published in 2016 in Mathematics Teacher. Written by Laurie Rubel, this article discusses the need to expand the focus on diversity and equity in mathematics education to include gender and sexuality. Journal club attendees can freely access the legacy article here: https://doi.org/10.5951/mathteacher.109.6.0434 . You do not have to be an NCTM member to participate in the MTLT Journal Club.
