Workshop

Meeting the Challenge of Introducing Senior High School Students to Contemporary Mathematics

1:30 p.m. – 2:50 p.m., Tower Court D, Tower Building

Consider the challenge mentioned in the title, why meet it and how? Our suggestion consists of periodically interweaving Mathematics-News-Snapshots (MNSs). We’ll examine a sample MNS against the rationale and the guidelines for MNS authors. Results from interweaving 21 different MNSs in Israel will be followed by a call for collaboration in (i) Developing new MNSs; (ii) Implementing existing MNSs empirically. Participants are requested to bring their laptops or mobile phones to be able to connect to the internet during the workshop.
