Dear Teachers,
UCA is submitting planning to submit a 2020 Robert Noyce Grant application to provide scholarships, stipends, and programmatic support to recruit and prepare STEM majors and professionals to become K-12 teachers. We are requesting teachers to complete a survey. The survey asks questions related to understanding inquiry-based learning and the support received by multiple entities during the teachers’ induction. The data derived from this research will be used to support the Induction portion of the UCA 2020 Robert Noyce Grant application.
Your participation in this survey is voluntary and the data will be kept confidential and used only for proposal purposes. You can take the survey either using the link or by scanning the QR code provided below.

I wanted to remind you all of the AR AIMS Math Digital Learning Site I have created for teachers around the state. There is a large amount of material on the site for AP teachers, but I have also included great resources for math teachers grades 6-Pre-Calculus. It also includes all of the updates from the College Board about the new exam format and resources.
Here is the link for the site. Please feel free to share it with other teachers in your building!
I also wanted to include my April newsletter for both AP Calculus and Statistics with other great information.

Dear Teachers and Teacher Leaders of Arkansas,

These past few weeks have been a challenging time for a lot of us math educators as we transition to Alternative Modes of Instruction (AMI) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the University of Central Arkansas, we would like to better understand what we can do to support the K-12 teachers throughout the state in their mathematics instruction during this unprecedented event. As such, we are conducting a brief anonymous survey (at most ten minutes) about your teaching context, challenges, current support, and what additional support we may be able to provide for you. We understand that you may be overwhelmed and managing a lot in your own life as well as the lives of your students. We would like to be able to support you in any way that we can and would greatly appreciate if you would be able to take a quick anonymous survey:


We are very thankful for your dedication to your students, especially at this time.

Good Morning! AR AIMS has complied resources available to all teachers that can aid in your search for digital materials while we adjust to this new and unprecedented approach to learning.
I created a Google site dedicated to Math Digital Learning materials. It includes the AR AIMS Math Videos for AP Review that teachers have used and loved in the past, new content videos for AP Statistics and Calculus, and pages for lower level and middle school courses as well. The link for the site is

Math Educators- Join our ADE DESE team of math specialists in Little Rock! Make a difference across the entire state by leading efforts related to math standards and curriculum, effective teaching practices, professional learning, and more. This position is a secondary math focus. Posting closes April 1st.


From Summer McArthur:

I know everyone is worried about finding resources on our AMI days. I created a google site for our AR AIMS teachers with support in AP Calculus AB/BC and AP Statistics, and I thought I would share it with as many teachers as I can around the state.  There are also other links on the Online Resources page that could benefit teachers in any secondary math course.
The link to the Google Site is:

Attention: 7th-12th grade STEM Subject Teachers

Are you interested in immersing yourself in a local STEM business this summer to enrich your classroom?

Do you want to be paid for enhancing your classroom with that internship?

Then check out https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fualr.edu%2Fstrive%2F&data=02%7C01%7CARMATH%40listserv.uark.edu%7C765a8408a0c24cc43dfc08d7b7092c77%7C79c742c4e61c4fa5be89a3cb566a80d1%7C0%7C0%7C637179123219256387&sdata=47WBZkL%2FSAPyZ87t%2B1WY8hhW%2BWJv%2FOIp6YDgf7Z79q4%3D&reserved=0 for more information on the STRIVE program! Deadline to submit an application is March 8, 2020.
The ADE STEM Unit is collaborating with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock to promote the 5-week summer STRIVE program to expand educator knowledge and experience within careers that utilize STEM skills. This professional learning experience through business internships around the state will empower teachers to build student awareness of and preparation for jobs that require STEM skills that they are teaching.
