Winter 2020-2021 Book Study

In our recent Book Study, we discussed

Becoming the Math Teacher You Wish You'd Had

in an online forum.

The book study is now completed for the year.  Thank you to all this year’s participants.  It was a difficult year, but you all found a way to participate.   ATOMIC would like to express a heartfelt THANK YOU  to Karen Campe for her dedication to making our book studies a continued success.  Watch for our next book in the fall, and let us know if you have a terrific book you think would be great to study together!

Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) is the highest honor bestowed by the United States government specifically for K-12 mathematics and science (including computer science) teaching.  Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.

Anyone - principals, teachers, parents, students, or members of the general public - may nominate exceptional mathematics or science teachers, who are teaching in grades 7-12 for the current school year. Teachers may also apply directly at paemst.orgThis site has more information about when nominations are open, and which grade levels are included for the current school year.
