    There will be a meeting for teachers who are interested in talking about how to "fill in the gaps" in BTC, i.e. provide further detail on implementation that teachers can use, so that they benefit from the wisdom of each other and don't have to learn everything about implementation from their own trial and error. We hope this turns into a robust and supportive community of practice. The first meeting will be on June 30th, 9am-noonish, at the Milford BoE. Register here, no cost.

    CCLM is excited to announce two great opportunities for secondary school teachers and especially math leaders! Each session will address two topics of very high interest. We will use a roundtable format, but we also will have special guests attending each session. Both sessions will be moderated by Past President John Keogh. 


    Both sessions are virtual. 

    Session B: Thursday May 4 2:30-3:45 

    Session C: Wednesday May 10 2:30-3:45 



    Session B: the two topics (both based on Pillar #2 from the Math Equity Position paper) are (1) How do we enhance the relevance of math for our students? and (2) How are you diversifying pathways or what new courses are you offering to meet the needs of your students? 

    Session C: the two topics are (1) What should algebra 2 look like and how important is this course for your students? and (2) What is your school or district doing to meet the Essential Condition that we implement high-quality curriculum?  


    These two sessions are FREE for all current individual or district members. 


    If you are NOT a current member, we have great news for you! By registering for either session and paying the $25 membership fee (which will be invoiced to you by our treasurer), your membership will be extended until June of 2024!!

    Financial Literacy Month and Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month April marks an important month in education. This month we celebrate both Financial Literacy Month and Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month. This is an opportunity for schools to encourage students and their families to engage in learning that sets the foundation for a bright future. It is critical for students to be financially literate and to understand mathematics and statistics as important drivers in our current world. The Connecticut State Department of Education encourages districts, schools and informal education partners to promote this month by checking out the attached CSDE - PD Playlist Financial Literacy Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month. Together we can increase financial knowledge and appreciate the diverse applications of mathematics and statistics.

    MTC 4 Social Justice has an upcoming workshop Tuesday evening with an algebra/statistics lesson and important conversation on incarceration rates by demographics. See below for the registration link and more information.


     3/21 Registration


    Workshop Title: Incarceration in Connecticut

    Date/Time: Tuesday, March 21st, 6:30-8:00pm (EST) via Zoom

    Presenters: Taryn DiSorbo, Cheshire Public Schools; Nickie Pendolphi, Groton Public Schools; Bella Llano, University of Connecticut

    Description: The United States continues to have the highest rate of incarceration in the world. Connecticut has taken steps to lower this rate, but how has the criminal justice system impacted different demographic groups? In this session, we will share our lesson that analyzes incarceration rates by race (or gender or age) in Connecticut in the past decade. We will use regression and Desmos to compare different rates over time and then shift our focus to critical conversations. What can be done to improve our system through restorative justice (for example)?
