July 11 Practice Tic-Tac-Toe - Kayleigh Rose

Strategy for situations where repeated practice is required and a worksheet just won't cut it. Goal is for students to achieve tic-tac-toe, or fill the entire board, by successfully completing carefully selected problems. Students can monitor their progress, can work at their own pace, and are motivated by the competitive nature of the result. Students reflect on their own work to find mistakes and can collaborate during the process. This also serves as aa formative assessment of understanding where teachers can act on immediately.

July 12 Short Announcements - Chance, Danny, Lisa

Lisa: Mini Twitter Math Camp Announcement

July 12 Global Math Department - Sahar Khatri

Global Math Department (aka MTBoS) is a network of educators across the US and Canada. It's a community that learns, shares, and supports one another through twitter, blogs, online resources, and at times in person. It has had a major impact on the first 3 years of my teaching. I'd also be sharing how educators at PCMI can get involved and begin connecting with the math ed community through a virtual medium.

July 18 Three Act Math - Chris Watts

In this five-minute short, I introduce the benefits of three-act math, a teaching device pioneered by Dan Meyer, where students encounter math in a low entry / high ceiling environment. I demonstrate two iterations of this process, one used by him and one I've created while participating during a Math for America Professional Learning Team. Observers will also be provided resources for viewing pre-made three-act math templates.
