November 15, 2007

Room 114 at 3:30

 

From exemplary problems to the tested curriculum, explore the benefits and challenges that Georgia faces as it implements an Integrated School Mathematics curriculum.  New York StateŐs fascination with integrated high school mathematics is now over 20 years old.  Lessons learned from the Empire State can be of great benefit to the Peach State, particularly as it relates to breathing life into the curriculum at the classroom level.  ItŐs sure to be of great interest to Georgia mathematics educators from middle school to graduate school.
