    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!
