With the Math in the Media program from the American Mathematical Society (AMS), teachers can stay up-to-date with math in current events and get ideas for classroom activities. The site has two components: Digests of Math in the Media and Tony Phillips’ Take on Math in the Media.
The National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) advances STEM education to ensure all students, especially those furthest from opportunity, thrive and reach their highest potential as problem solvers and lifelong learners who pursue their passions and tackle the world’s toughest challenges.
The National Park Service (NPS) helps teachers use the world’s first national park to bring science, mathematics, and social studies to life. Classrooms can connect with a Yellowstone National Park ranger to learn more about geology, ecology, or cultural history, and the National Park Service mission of preservation.
Imagine students saying, “I get to go to summer school”—about MATH! The MIND Research Institute’s new five-week program, designed specifically for summer school use in K–5, immerses students in rich math experiences. The program provides pre- and post-assessments, number-sense games, small-group instruction, and much more. Ninety-minute blocks, five days a week is all it takes to help build confidence and facilitate a deep conceptual understanding. Get started today and make sure your students are ready to hit the ground running in the fall.
Each month we publish blogs and newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in December.
