    Dear MoMath friend,


    Spread the word!  MoMath is hosting three fun sessions for K-6 educators this summer.  Sign up now for FREE food, FREE events, and even a FREE t-shirt to the first 25 registrants!


    If you’re a K-6 educator who wants to improve or enjoy your relationship with math, don’t miss MoMath’s new Roundtablesessions.  Three evenings of engaging exploration and play will help you see a side of math you never knew existed!


    Sessions include:

    • Mathematical Magic for Muggles: Learn how the simplest of mathematical ideas, like "an odd plus an odd is even" and "x + -x = 0" can help us to craft magic tricks that seemingly bestow superhuman powers on us.  No skill required!

    • Compositions for Cavepeople: Counting the number of ways to decompose a number into sums is a fiendishly challenging puzzle.  Explore various ways to represent sums and the patterns that emerge from them, and see how changing our point of view can help us get started on a novel problem!

    • Picking Points for Practitioners: Is there a relationship between area and perimeter?  Play with Geo boards and discover connections between boundaries and interiors — then see if you can prove them!


    Sessions will include a lighthearted, engaging approach to math, a shared meal, reflections on pedagogy, and the opportunity to make new friends.  


    Be among the first to sign up for all three sessions and receive a free MoMath t-shirt!  In addition, participants who sign up by July 28 can enjoy priority seating at presentations from two of the nation’s most entertaining math presenters, Persi Diaconis and Art Benjamin.

    Don’t miss this fun-filled week beginning July 31 — you’ll return to school energized about math!  Register now at mtc.momath.org.

    Math Education Is STEM Education

    July 19 | 7:00 p.m. ET

     

    In this webinar, NCTM President Matt Larson discusses design principles which would ensure that an effective science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) program builds mathematics understanding. Larson's argument is that there is only one fundamental and critical design principle necessary. We will address this more during this webinar.
