We will be hosting our second dynamic discussion on Tuesday (2-19) at 7 PM at https://uwmsoe.zoom.us/j/333883060.
We are going to be joined by a couple of educational leader in the area of differentiation, intervention, and remediation.
We invite participants to consider and bring answers to the questions: What have you tried in terms of differentiation/remediation/intervention that has been successful? What has failed? (If you have examples you would like to share, you can email them to me in advance if you wish.)
We look forward to an exciting and informative discussion on Tuesday.
We will be offering a second iteration of our Catalyzing Change Book Study. It will be on Wednesday in March from 4-5. Registration is $20 which includes an e-book ($5 to register with no e-book) and free to undergraduates. To register visit: http://wismath.org/WMC-Book-Study
WI-AMTE will be holding our first Dynamic Discussion of Teaching Mathematics at 8 PM CST on January 15th, 2019. This will be a fast paced-sixty minutes of sharing research-based teaching practices – give us an hour and we’ll give you something exciting to try in your classroom the next day!
The session will focus on problem solving strategies and provide educators with a platform to share ideas and instructional strategies. The idea is to have open forum for people to network from across the state. We encourage people to bring their own resources to share with the group.
We will be meeting via Zoom (https://uwmsoe.zoom.us/j/923820465) to discuss problem solving strategies used in the classroom.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. If you know of any fellow educators who would be interested in joining, please let them know about this meeting.
You can find the resources for our Dynamic Discussions on this page.

Calling all mentors of teachers of mathematics! WI-AMTE is creating a mentor support group. The group will host monthly meetings filled with discussion of best practices, challenges, and solutions. To join visit:https://goo.gl/forms/BsO8FUDu6WXVYvfG3. WI-AMTE membership is not required.
The Wisconsin Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators and the Wisconsin Mathematics Council are pleased to hold our 3rd Preservice and Early-Career Poster Session at the WMC Annual Meeting in Green Lake, WI May 1-3, 2019. The Poster session is an opportunity for new and future teachers to present their work and network with education representatives from across the state.
Examples of possible topics to present include: 1) an action research project 2) an analysis of your teaching 3) an illustration of a teaching strategy including examples of student solutions and 4) A mathematical task that you have used to address an interesting part of the curriculum and examples of student work on the task. Posters should be on a tri-fold board or a poster attached to a trifold.
If you are teaching preservice teachers in the fall or spring semester, we hope you will encourage your students to participate. We are especially interested in adding students who have projects with elementary students. WI-AMTE will pay for one day of registration for all participants who present a poster. The submission form for poster ideas will be available in early January and confirmation of poster acceptance will occur in early April.
If you have any questions, please contact Matt Chedister (email@example.com).
