Internet Committee

Working Groups (2 hours, 4 days a week): Every participant in the High School Teacher Program pre-selects one of the working groups.

Over a 1-3 year period, the working groups will:

  • review and critique existing materials and activities for the selected topic in the secondary curriculum
  • prepare and pilot 1-3 units or activities, together with the associated mathematics
  • critique and select units from among these new activities for eventual publication

Each Working Group will be composed of several teacher-participants and one or two resource personnel. The group will work together to research existing classroom materials and techniques, related technology, etc., for its topic and then create 1-3 classroom activity units, including a presentation of the underlying mathematics, for dissemination and eventual publication in a PCMI volume of classroom materials. There are many ways for teachers to participate in the working groups, and each participant is encouraged to operate in their area of expertise, e.g. writing, presenting, creating, etc.

Resource personnel for the various groups include: James King (University of Washington), Robert Stein (California State University at San Bernardino), Al Cuoco (Education Development Center), Philip Mallinson (Phillips Exeter Academy), Annie Fetter, Sheldon Berman and Suzanne Alejandre (Math Forum), Roger Verhey (University of Michigan-Dearborn), Bill Finzer (Key Curriculum Press), the University of Washington Physics Education Group, and representatives from the PCMI Research, Undergraduate Faculty, and Math Education Research Programs.
