Mathematical Moments That Leave Us Breathless and Wanting to Learn More
Imagine a moment when something took your breath away. It might have been a song you heard, a play or movie you saw, a poem or book you read, a sunrise or sunset you saw, an encounter with nature, an invention; a piece of technology, or a magic show. Can you imagine what life would be like without such moments to remember that leave us breathless? Join Ron Lancaster for a discussion of what teachers can to do to ensure that students have similar encounters with mathematics that leave them wanting to learn more and that invite them to marvel and be amazed at a subject that is truly the greatest show on earth.

RE: A Virtual Stage To Connect Mathematics Professors
Thank you to everyone who attended my presentation. I hope to see you around here soon.
A Virtual Stage To Connect Mathematics Professors
In a survey published this past fall of about 2000 professors, 75% mentioned that they support the increased use of educational technologies and 30% described themselves as early adopters of new technologies. Have you ever wondered how to connect with these educators and be able to discuss and debate the pros and cons of being able to successfully use technologies to teach mathematics? Have you waited eagerly for annual conferences to listen to fellow educators share information on their teaching methods? I would like to introduce you to an open virtual platform that has been recently launched by Vretta to connect math professors across our country, a platform to discuss and share technological adoptions and innovations to produce the greatest math show in their classroom.
RE: Using Office 365 to Teach Mathematics
Thank you to everyone who attended my presentation. Don't be afraid to give Office a try, it's a powerful tool that is accessible at virtually all levels of technology comfort levels. I'm also happy to answer any questions you have., here.
Using Office 365 to Teach Mathematics
What presentation is complete without a good platform? Chances are your college has a subscription to the Office 365 platform for you and your students. With its extensive set of mathematics input features, it is an excellent platform to enhance and facilitate communication within your department or even with and among your students. We will look at the features of Office 365, from Word to OneDrive and SharePoint to Teams. We will start with getting you connected and then look at some aspects that will use math tools and departmental collaboration. Bring your devices and get connected so you have a solid platform to start off the 2019-2020 school year.
