NCAMS is happy to share with you information about the Colloquium for Secondary School Teachers of Mathematics.
Over the past decade, the secondary school curriculum has been influenced by the Common Core State Standards Initiative whose proponents “recognized the value of consistent, real-world learning goals and launched this effort to ensure all students, regardless of where they live, are graduating high school prepared for college, career, and life.”
From the beginning of its inclusion into the New York State mathematics curriculum, teachers, administrators and districts have been working to grasp the essential ideas and have wrestled with their own mathematical background and understandings in order to develop effective pedagogical strategies that meet New York State and the Common Core standards.
This colloquium will reacquaint teachers with some ideas that they may not have seen since their undergraduate education and, now, have become essential to meet the goal of preparing students for college, career, and life through the math curriculum. Teachers will emerge with a better understanding of how the material they are teaching in grades 7 through 12 impact students when they take college level math courses in all areas and how they might develop pedagogical strategies that make these connections.
Please see the flyer below for more information.
While not a conference, please see the note below from the Institute of Creative Problem-Solving
I’m Peter G. Hayes, coordinator for the 9th and 10th-grade group at the Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students, a prestigious math enrichment program hosted at SUNY Old Westbury. I’m writing to you today to ask for your help. Please nominate math-motivated 8th and 9th-grade students for ICPS 2019-2020. The application deadline is March 11, 2019, so please act soon! Please encourage students to apply to ICPS, and direct them to the web address. The ICPS application packet and brochure are available at http://institutecreativeproblemsolving.org/nomination.htm.
The twenty Saturday sessions of the ICPS are completely free for students accepted to the program; comparable local math programs charge from $1500 to $3500. The ICPS 9-10 entrance exam is based on 18 math theorems (and their proofs), as described in the included documents. Committed students can prepare themselves in-depth, maximizing their chances for admission. I encourage you to share the attached information with all interested students. Thank you for your attention, and for all your work supporting the mathematical progress of your students.
