Date/Time: Tuesday, September 21; 6:30-8:00pm EST

Description: Did you know that Connecticut distributes $2 billion annually towards Connecticut schools? They use a formula for distribution called the Education Cost Sharing (ECS) Formula. As with any use of resources that gives different amounts to different constituents, a key question math can help us think about is: Is this fair? There are multiple factors accounted for in the formula. Are there more factors that should be considered? Are different weights appropriate? Such questions help us explore CT’s current policies and reflect on school funding.

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 K-6 for the current school year. Teachers may also apply directly at paemst.org This site has more information about when nominations are open, and which grade levels are included for the current school year.  For 2021-2022, the nomination/application period begins August 1, 2021, and applications must be completed by February 6, 2022.
