InterMath is a professional development effort designed to support teachers in becoming better mathematics educators. It focuses on building teachers' mathematical content knowledge through mathematical investigations that are supported by technology. InterMath includes a workshop component and materials to support instructors. For each of the following problems, consider how you would pose the same problem to your students. Would the wording need to change? Would you need to include more pictures? More detailed pictures? But remember we don't want to do TOO MUCH for the student. If we provide too much information, they will not need to think about what the question is asking. (less)

This video workshop for high school American literature teachers introduces techniques for reading cultural, political, and religious artifacts and connecting them to the literature they teach. In each video program, experts in multiple disciplines do close analysis of a wide range of visual, print, and physical artifacts. The experts engage on-camera teachers in a discussion of the artifacts and how they can enhance the study of works of literature. These teachers then use artifacts with their own students to help deepen their understanding of the historical, political, and social contexts of the literature they read. Throughout the workshop, participants will learn and practice a six-step process for choosing and using artifacts successfully with their students. (less)

The National Research Council (NRC) has undertaken a three-phase project to explore the possibility of a program to attract science, mathematics and engineering PhDs to careers in K-12 education. The first phase of the project surveyed the interests of recent PhDs in science and mathematics in pursuing careers in secondary education. Analysis of the Phase I data suggests that a significant percentage of PhDs might be interested in pursuing careers in secondary education under some circumstances. This report from the second phase of the project presents a proposal for a national demonstration program to determine how one might prepare PhDs to be productive members of the K-12 education community. The proposed program is designed to help meet the needs of the nation's schools, while providing further career opportunities for recent PhDs in science, mathematics and engineering. (less)
