Category: Workshop
Description: ANNOUNCING SIMIODE MAA PREP WORKSHOP 19-25 July 2015, Carroll College, Helena MT The Mathematical Association of America, through its Professional Enhancement Program (PREP) has awarded SIMIODE a grant to conduct a 5 day workshop for 20 colleagues to introduce them to SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations. SIMIODE is a web-based community, combining the benefits of online-learning communities, teacher repositories, problem-based and inquiry-based learning, and technology into a web-based environment for the teaching and learning of differential equations through mathematical modeling. The workshop has a fee of $325/person early fee, and $400/person late fee (6 weeks or less before the workshop start date). Participants are responsible for their own transportation. All expenses at the workshop, including an afternoon cruise on the Missouri River to the Gates of the Rockies, are provided. Participants will be offered FREE single room, shared bath, occupancy in a modern dormitory on campus and FREE meals. The workshop will begin with arrival on Sunday evening, 19 July 2015 and end after breakfast on Saturday, 25 July 2015. Before the workshop participants will join the SIMIODE community at and experience Modeling Scenarios from a student viewpoint, Discussion Activities about important issues, and Teacher Groups for developing materials. During the workshop participants will have opportunities to engage as student groups, to realize the potential of SIMIODE, and to share reactions, experiences, and aspirations for engaging students. Colleagues will work in groups to develop materials for peer-reviewed publishing in SIMIODE. After the workshop activities and conversations will continue through SIMIODE’s web features (e.g., Discussions, Projects, Newsletter) as PREP participants form their own special group inside the SIMIODE Teachers Group.
