Family Math Night 2012

On April 26, UK preservice mathematics education teachers assisted inservice mathematics teachers at Jessie Clark Middle School in running math games aimed at increasing students’ mathematical knowledge and skills while showing that mathematics learning can be fun. The event attracted more than 484 people! This is part of the outreach efforts of the See Blue Mathematics Clinic, started in Spring 2011 and funded this year by the Kentucky Center for Mathematics.

Systems Thinking for Sustainability – a true Multi-disciplinary course

Systems Thinking for Sustainability is multi-disciplinary course (architecture, engineering, marketing, and STEM education) that will offer UK students a unique opportunity to develop projects in sustainability as members of collaborative teams. Together, these teams will tackle sustainability issues involving complex systems where economic, social, and technical factors interact in dynamic and challenging ways. Team-taught by faculty from four colleges (Education, Engineering, Business, Design), STFS will be an essential preparation to the student’s senior capstone projects and application of content to K12 classrooms.

I am excited and happy to be a part of this fabulous project! Stay tuned for more!

Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All

Senate Bill 1 (2009) has a new name…Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All. As in everything education, I have acronym’d it…UBL. At University of Kentucky, we’re working on creating a resource page for everything around UBL/SB1. We have the basic structure and basic links up now:

We’ll be adding lots more to it in the coming weeks. Enjoy!
