Albuquerque Math Teachers’ Circle Mission Statement
The Albuquerque Math Teachers' Circle supports local teachers who desire
to explore mathematical ideas in a fun, encouraging environment. Our
meetings provide an opportunity for participants to work on interesting
problems, developing their mathematical knowledge, skills, and intuition,
with the support of leading mathematicians and scientists from the local
Teachers' Circle Ready to Go!!!
After an unfortunate hiatus due mainly to the bike accident I had back in August, we are going to finally kick off our meetings for this academic year next month with, yes, an investigation of some mathematics related to biking! The other dates for our meetings are set but the topics and speakers are somewhat open so please let me know if you have preferences. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any suggestions or uestions!
During our monthly meetings, teachers will have a chance to engage in mathematical explorations which will strengthen their knowledge and their passion for learning. Local mathematicians and scientists, often assisted by APS math coaches, will provide teachers with challenging and interesting problems, offering guidance as needed. The goal is to build
a strong community of indepedent thinkers who view sustained creative
inquiry as fundamental to mathematical thinking.
Feedback about our sessions, including ideas for speakers or topics of interest should be sent to Michael Nakamaye firstname.lastname@example.org.
