WISELearn OER Innovation Grant application is now OPEN!

DPI is providing up to 20 grants of $10,000 each to help Wisconsin educators create and curate high quality educational materials and to share them as Open Educational Resources (OER) in WISELearn. All applicants must be Wisconsin public educational entities (schools, CESAs, libraries, etc.), though they may partner with other organizations.

OER are teaching and learning materials that have been made easier to use via licensing them (usually under Creative Commons) to be freely used, distributed without restriction, and often modified without permission.

Apply for one of twenty (20) WISELearn OER (Open Education Resources) Innovation Grants to support authoring and remixing OER digital content, collaboration among educators across grade levels and content areas, and contribution of content into the WISELearn repository to positively impact both the teaching and learning process by providing teachers and administrators with cost-effective materials that are available for sharing, accessing, and collaborating for personalized learning.

GRANT DEADLINE: June 30, 2018 (extended from June 15)
GRANTS AWARDED: Early August 2018

WITC in New Richmond is looking for a math instructor. See details below.

Hello everyone,

We are in need of a Math instructor to take over the Math 373 class that is a part of our Welding Academy at the New Richmond Campus. Our instructor has had to take a leave of absence, and will not be able to finish the term. We were able to find coverage for the next two weeks, but we need to find a quality long-term substitute for the rest of the semester. I am reaching out to see if you might either have teachers who are available or if you might know of individuals in your community who might qualify.



The course runs Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 7:30 – 8:25. Our semester ends in Mid-May, so we are looking at about a two-month commitment. If you know of anyone, please let me know ASAP and I will connect them with our Math Dean. We would, of course, pay the instructor for their time, including prep time.



Thank you for your help!! Drive safely this afternoon!





Sincerely,



Jeanne Germain

I highly recommend thinking about Attached is a flyer where you will find more information.

Take a moment to think about the 2018 STATE MATHEMATICS CONTEST sponsored by the Wisconsin Mathematics Council. It will be held the week of March 5-9, 2018. WMC is sponsoring contests for both middle and high school students .If this is something that would be of interest in your school or district. Also, I am going to challenge each of you to pass along this opportunity to another person, school or district who you know may not be in this community. ​

I have a school district in CESA #11 looking for a math teacher for grades 7-9 starting immediately as a long term sub or a full time position until the end of the year. Please reply if you want more details.

A new and interesting document about HS Mathematics! NCTM is currently looking for public review and feedback.

I am looking for math resources that could be used for enrichment activities in the Middle School with a focus on real-world problem solving. Anyone have good websites or resources they could share?

Interesting post on the effect of the summer slide in math, and one ambitious attempt to tackle it using a game.

"On average, students lose 2.6 months of learning in math during the summer break. They also note that math learning loss is bigger than reading, and cuts across all socioeconomic backgrounds. They suggest that, while reading activities are often part of a family’s daily life, parents and kids don’t usually think about math outside the classroom. (Try to imagine a bedtime math routine rather than a reading routine.)"

Does anyone have a recommendation for an AP Calculus text?

I am looking for some book recommendations on Math Coaching - some really good introductory books and also a few recommendations on taking math coaching to the next level - to advance good coaching practices already. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
