    Middle School is an ideal time for students to explore challenge based learning across the curriculum.  Challenge based learning has many benefits for students including increased engagement and content knowledge acquisition and is an ideal way to incorporate the eight science and engineering practices outlined by the Next Generation Science Standards. If you are interested in learning how to incorporate more challenge based learning into your middle school curriculum in any content area you will benefit from this professional development session from the learning specialists at EdAdvance’s Skills21. Skills21's evidence-based program has been recognized by the US Department of Education and the National Science Foundation as an exemplary model for driving student STEM success. Skills21 has worked with schools and communities in CT for nearly 20 years.

    There is no cost for this professional development and we will serve a continental breakfast with tea and coffee and lunch.  

    Date : Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 8:30AM-2:30PM

    Dear MoMath enthusiast,

    For those of you who haven't already registered for the next Math Encounters presentation, the Museum is happy to announce that Henry Cohn will be presenting "Lost in Space: How Data and Information are Governed by High-Dimensional Geometry" on Wednesday, September 5.

    About the talk: How can we understand high dimensions, and why should we? High-dimensional geometry may seem like a hopelessly abstract subject, hard to grasp and with no obvious real-world relevance. But, surprise! It turns out you can’t understand “big data” without high-dimensional geometry. Join Microsoft Research mathematician Henry Cohn in an exploration of the practicality and beauty of higher dimensions.  There will be a special introduction by Julia Kempe, Director of the NYU Center for Data Science.

    MoMath is pleased to offer two sessions of the upcoming Math Encounters presentation.  The first will begin promptly at 4:00 pm, with light refreshments served afterward.  The second will begin promptly at 7:00 pm, with light refreshments served beforehand, at 6:30 pm.  Both presentations will be held at MoMath, which is located at 11 E 26th Street in Manhattan.

    Note that if you are waitlisted, you will not be admitted to the seating area until all registered participants have been accommodated.

    Register for the 4:00 pm presentation

    Register for the 7:00 pm presentation

    Plus, it's not too soon to sign up for the next installment of Math Encounters: "Living is a Dangerous Business" presented by Jen Rogers, Director of Statistical Consultancy Services for the University of Oxford, with special introduction by math comedian and YouTube phenom Matt Parker.

    To register for either date or to learn more about Math Encounters, visit mathencounters.org.

    Hello CT teachers!

    Summer is in full swing and this is a great time to think about fitting in some PD before school starts! You might remember that Connecticut has on-line and in-person options for UTeach CS Principles PD https://cs.uteach.utexas.edu/ this summer (more info in attached factsheet). The PD is FREE and offers a $500 stipend for course completion, thanks to generous funding from the Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation. The courses include PD, curriculum and one year of support. Also, each teacher who completes the course receives a $500 stipend and now we are now offering you an additional $200 stipend if you refer a fellow high school teacher who completes the course! (If you and a collogue sign up at the same time, y’all can share the $200!)

    We have a few seats left in two courses:
    •       Online - July 8 - August 18 - Register Here https://www.cvent.com/events/summer-2018-uteach-cs-professional-learning-and-year-round-support/registration-962115b45c044b59846a9cb2ff1a16db.aspx?r=705afca4-7921-48f0-89ed-9f143f967ce5&fqp=true – Registration deadline July 6
