TITLE: What does it mean to “do math” in a Math Teachers’ Circle?
DESCRIPTION: Math Teachers’ Circles (MTCs) bring teachers and mathematicians together to engage in mathematical activity. Two often-stated claims are that MTCs involve “doing what mathematicians do,” and that MTCs are communities of practice. We explore these claims by examining the joint enterprise of an MTC.
NOTE: We will be offering the first-ever Gallatin Valley Math Teacher Circle event in May. Attend this seminar, then join us for math-motivated fun at a local “establishment” next month!
