Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,
We hope you are all safe and healthy in this difficult time of covid-19.
Christine von Renesse wrote a blog this winter about her experience teaching remote synchronously in fall 2020 - including resources and video clips. We hope that the blog will give you some ideas how to use activities from our Discovering the Art of Mathematics books.
On February 16 Prof. von Renesse will facilitate the Electronic Seminar in Mathematics Education - come join if you want to participate in a mathematics for liberal arts activity and think about faculty community building. In close collaboration with colleagues from Community Colleges, we are also planning on offering a remote-synchronous "Immersion in Inquiry" workshop at NEMATYC in April.
We keep being actively involved in the New England Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics Community. Have you considered joining your regional community/COMMIT or starting your own? We wrote a blog about the strategies we used to start and maintain our community last summer. We hope it can be a valuable resource for some of you.
We wish you all a safe and successful spring semester,
Julian Fleron, Phil Hotchkiss, Volker Ecke, & Christine von Renesse.
p.s. In case you have missed it: our website allows faculty to create a free account and access teacher materials to some of our books.
