Chippewa Valley Math Teachers' Circle session set for March 11March 4, 2013
EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host the final Chippewa Valley Math Teachers' Circle session of the year from 5:30-7:30 p.m. March 11 in Room 231 of Hibbard Hall.
Dr. Melissa Loe, associate professor of mathematics at the University of St. Thomas, will lead a session titled "Exploring Polydrons."
The math teachers' circle, directed by Dr. Richard Spindler, senior lecturer of mathematics at UW-Eau Claire, engages math teachers in mathematical problem solving and involves them in an ongoing dialogue about mathematics with colleagues and professional mathematicians. While primarily focused on middle school teachers, interested high school teachers also are invited to attend.
Each session provides a specific yet open-ended mathematical problem to collaborate on with fellow teachers. In addition, there is plenty of time to socialize, discuss classroom experiences, pedagogy and share a meal. Dinner is provided free of charge for those who attend the event.
The CVMTC is made possible by grants from the American Institute of Mathematics, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, the Ann Marie Foundation and Xcel Energy.
