Hello, Arkansas Math educators!

Here is the RFA announcement for an amazing opportunity for schools to implement high-quality, rigorous mathematics curriculum for grades 6-8, Algebra 1, and Geometry. Kim Romain is the Grant Coordinator for the AR T1MC Grant. We are so excited for the positive impact this support will have on students!


Arkansas Recipients of Presidential Awards for Excellence Announced
LITTLE ROCK — Two Arkansas teachers were recently selected as recipients of the 2019 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
The National Science Foundation, on behalf of The White House, oversees the program that recognizes teachers who have demonstrated a commitment to professional development, innovative teaching techniques, and technology use in their classrooms. Each recipient will receive a $10,000 award, presidential citation, and a trip to Washington, DC, for a series of recognition events, professional development activities, and an awards ceremony.
2019 Recipients

*   Mary Hatch, Environmental and Spatial Technology, Grades 6-8, Harrison Middle School, Harrison School District (Science Award)
*   Melodie Murray, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, Advanced Topics and Mathematical Modeling, Pocahontas High School, Pocahontas School District (Math Award)
“Math and science principles are heavily ingrained in today’s jobs, as well as jobs of the future,” Arkansas Department of Education Secretary Johnny Key said. “In order to be prepared for the workforce, exceptional teachers in these fields are critical to success. I am happy to congratulate Ms. Hatch and Ms. Murray for receiving these presidential awards. This recognition is among the highest in the STEM field, and these two outstanding educators are well deserving of this honor.”
Each year math and science educators are nominated on the state level. State finalists then have the potential to receive national recognition. A national committee comprised of scientists, mathematicians, and educators reviews all state finalists and recommends up to 108 teachers to receive PAEMST awards in mathematics, science, and computer science. Winners are chosen from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. territories, and schools operated in the United States and overseas by the Department of Defense Education Activity.

2020-DESE-Quantitative Literacy
Monday 7.20.2020
This training explores the Quantitative Literacy (QL) content standards and course overview. QL addresses the mathematics of personal and business finance, modeling, statistics and probability, and numerical reasoning. Students will analyze real world situations and represent their reasoning and conclusions numerically, graphically, symbolically, and verbally. Activities and resources will be shared with participants including access to an online repository. This session is for participants who have not previously attended QL training. Participants will need a computer with camera, microphone, and a stable internet connection. Zoom link and additional information will be sent prior to training for participants to familiarize themselves with Zoom norms and virtual platforms. There is no cost for registration.

2020-DESE-SREB Transitional Math Ready
Monday & Tuesday 8.3.2020 & 8.4.2020
For schools to offer SREB Transitional Math Ready, teachers must attend professional development for the course.  ADE DESE will offer this required training virtually on August 3-4, 2020. All participants will need a computer with a stable internet connection and audio/video capabilities. There is no cost for registration. Upon completion of training, participants will receive access to the recently updated SREB Transitional Math Ready curriculum materials for students and teachers.
SREB Transitional Math Ready emphasizes understanding of mathematics concepts rather than just memorizing procedures.  By engaging students in real-world applications, Math Ready develops critical thinking skills that students will use in college and careers.
