East Bay Math Teachers’ Circle @ Stanley Middle School
May 2 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
East Bay Math Teachers' Circle @ Stanley Middle School | Lafayette | California | United States

Facilitator: Tom Davis — has a Caltech BS and a Stanford PhD, both in mathematics plus two years as a post-doc in the Stanford electrical engineering department. He was a founder and principal scientist at Silicon Graphics for 16 years. For the past 20 years he has been busy coaching middle- and high-school students and middle-school teachers to apply problem solving techniques in mathematics. He has also written a number of game-like computer programs for students to explore topics like Euclidean geometry, group theory and surreal numbers.

Topic: “Fractions and Decimals”  We’ll work some interesting — and cool — puzzles on the topic.  This session will be very useful for middle school teachers.

Over the past 30+ years, I have led hundreds of workshops for math teachers, at all grade levels and all over the country. Among those, the sessions I presented to Math Teacher Circles in San Jose, Palo Alto, and San Francisco stand out. These circles attract participants with a deep interest in both mathematics and teaching, who welcome tough problems and who are likely to take back what they learn to their students and their colleagues. There is no better way to support math education for Bay Area students.
