Recently, I began creating and developing the infrastructure for a new type of math contest called The SumThingsUp Challenge (inspired by The Flame Challenge of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at the State University of New York at Stony Brook). In this contest, mathematicians will compete to answer questions that might typically be asked by curious 3rd, 4th
AMTE Member Bulletin Board
An Informal Space for AMTE Members
The AMTE Bulletin board is a place for AMTE members to share information about professional development opportunities or mathematics education projects (e.g., events, calls for participation in other professional organizations, resources).

The House will formally vote to go to conference on an NCLB overhaul. Sen. Lamar Alexander is hopeful that lawmakers can get a compromise bill to President Obama by December. (The Hill)
Announcing the launch of a web-based catalog for teacher educators (and others) searching for video examples of student thinking, teaching practices or other phenomena of interest to mathematics educators. We hope that this site will make your search for video more efficient, and that it will serve, in months and years to come, as a repository for our collective knowledge of video resources.
The Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) is seeking two Program Officers for Teacher Development within the Teaching Fellows Program. KSTF seeks candidates with experience teaching math or science, passion for supporting early-career teachers, and a commitment to improving math and science education through investment in teachers.
Share this virtual recuritment opportuniy with students who are interested in graduate studes with a focus in mathematics education (and other fields). We invite them to join Baylor University Department of Curriculum and Instruction graduate program faculty in a virtual recruitment session coming up October 15, 2015 from noon-4 p.m. CST.
The Carol Malloy Research Symposium will be held on Saturday, October 10, 2015 to honor the legacy of Carol E. Malloy, Ph.D. While there is no cost to attend the Symposium, you MUST register through Laurie Norman (see below) so we can have a nametag for you and an accurate count both for seating and food.
An early draft of the CAEP Elementary Standards will presented to the CAEPCon next week in Washington, DC. After that presentation I should be able to share the draft electronically.
This is a great opportunity for beginning high school teachers. I think that sharing this can support us as MTE's to better support our teachers.
