AWM Teacher Partnership

Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 12, Number 1 (Spring 2007)


The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Teacher Partnership is intended to link teachers of mathematics in schools, museums, technical institutes, two-year colleges, and universities with other teachers working in an environment different from their own and with mathematicians working in business and industry. We invite individuals to join the partnership and will match members from different communities. Partnership activities will include:

Examples of such collaborations are:

In addition to electronic communications, partners may visit each other's classrooms, collaborate in teaching projects, or cooperate in writing grant proposals.

The AWM Teacher Partnership Program will pair a teacher (classroom or informal) with a mathematician. It will also maintain a Website for the purposes of sharing resources and information.

Eligibility:
Anyone who is engaged or interested in contributing to the formal or informal mathematics education of students at any level may request a partner who works with students at a different level or in a particular area of interest.

To participate in the program, please read the Guidelines and fill in the "Request a Partner" form. If you have any questions and comments, please contact one of the organizers: Pao-sheng Hsu (hsupao@maine.edu), Suzanne Lenhart (lenhart@math.utk.edu), and Erica Voolich (voolich@aol.com).
