    ATOMIM will be hosting our Spring Conference on Saturday March 4th, 2017 at Point Lookout in Northport, Maine. 

    We are currently seeking presenters for sessions at the 2017 Spring Conference and Annual Meeting. The success of the Conference depends largely on educators who are willing to share teaching ideas. A variety of workshops is encouraged. We will have 3 sets of 55 minute sessions this year. Sessions are appropriate for sharing information and brief hands-on opportunities. All quality proposals will be considered. We are committed to giving our attendees quality choices across all grade levels. If you would like to be considered as a presenter, please complete this form by February 1, 2017.

    Volunteer Registry

     

    The Maine Department of Education anticipates needing to form ad hoc committees over the next year to complete a variety of necessary work.  Some work relates to our accountability system.  Other work may focus on standards and proficiency.  Serving on a state level committee, whether for a day or several days, is a meaningful professional learning opportunity and demonstrates systemic thinking.

     

    In order to be ready to reach out to qualified practitioners, Maine DOE has opened up a volunteer registry for Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy.  Teachers and administrators with content expertise are invited to register through a Survey Monkey and be entered into a database for use as needed throughout the next year.  Remember, you can always refuse when called.  Registering for consideration is not a guarantee that you will be selected. 

     

    Please consider taking a minute to compete the registry today.  Your participation is needed and appreciated. 

     

    If you have questions about this registry, you may contact ELA Specialist morgan.dunton@maine.gov, Literacy Specialist l Leeann.Larsen@maine.gov , Elementary Mathematics SpecialistCheryl.Tobey@maine.gov, and MS/HS Mathematics Specialist Michele.R.Mailhot@maine.gov .

    Our Region 3 Representative, Marielle Edgecomb, was recently featured in an article supporting a learning environment where students are given choices to meet individual needs so that the attention can be on the learning. Check it out for yourself!

    Congratulations to Maine's recently announced PAEMST for Middle and High School Mathematics. He currently teaches ninth through 12th graders at Camden Hills Regional High School. We are grateful to William O'Brien for making Maine his home to practice the art and science of teaching. 

    "He has been called the 'pied piper of mathematics' for his ability to encourage large numbers of students to extend themselves mathematically. Whether shepherding 45 eager “mathletes” on the math team, or convincing an art student to take AP Calculus, he makes mathematics accessible, yet challenging. After school, his classroom is often filled with students working and discussing math -- even on a Friday afternoon!"

    As an elementary teacher, I just found out about Seesaw. This is an app for iPads where students can take a picture of their work and draw, write, explain or videotape to show their process or justify their thinking. It organizes the work in a folder for each student, and by date uploaded. I can invite parents' to have access to uploaded items in real time. We are recording our work in all subject areas, including Math journal pages. It would be just as useful in Middle School, or High School to improve home/school communication, and organize student work for reviewing at conferences. Papers can't get lost on the way home, and it is secure, so that parents will only see their own child's work. 


    If you are interested, I suggest you explore this app. I'm so excited that I won't need to spend money on binders, time on organizing, or muscles on carrying everything home to do report cards. Saving time, money and working smarter is on all of our lists.

    If your students are in grades 5 and 6 in Southern Maine, you can join the Southern Maine Elementary Math League!


    There are teams of 6 competing students, along with 6 alternates who participate. Over 30 teams compete at The Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland 3 times a year, and then once at The Portland Expo Center near the end of the school year.


    Students are challenged with an independent Geometry and Arithmetic test and also a team round where all 6 students work together to earn up to 36 points.


    All tests and team work are scored and tabulated.  The top 3 teams in 5th and 6th grades win a trophy and the individual scores can win a ribbon for places 1st through 5th.


     For more information, or to register your school's team, check out the Southern Maine Elementary Math League. 


    Do you know information about more Math Leagues around the state? Please email me, and I will share the information here. 


    Happy competing, Mathematicians!
