Mathematics teachers in Scottsbluff, Seward, Beatrice and Grand Island were treated to an evening of food and fun while working engaging math problems. Beatrice teachers looked at math tasks with a Halloween theme over pizza at Valentino’s, teachers in Scottsbluff learned about digital resources at the ESU 13 building over a catered dinner, and teachers from Brainard, Crete, Milford and surrounding areas met in Seward to play "Chomp the Graph" (a game of strategy) while chomping on dinner from Noodles, while teachers in Grand Island chomped the graphs at Pizza Hut.
Math Teachers Circle meetings provide opportunities for mathematicians and teachers to discover and share with students the excitement and richness of problem solving in deep yet accessible mathematical topics.
Circles are scheduled to convene at ESU 16 in North Platte today (Tuesday, November 19, contact Julie Hoaglund firstname.lastname@example.org) and another is expected to take place in Norfolk (contact email@example.com). In addition, spring Circle meetings are expected to take place in Hebron, Holdrege and Falls City. Watch the website for details.
