August Reading

The August Readings as part of A Call for a Collective Action was suggested by the Association of State Supervisors of Mathematics. The first is the April 2016 Great Lakes Equity Center Newsletter “April – Equitable Mathematics Instruction.” The second is “The Mathematical YAWP” by Francis Su, MAA Past-President. One of the targeted questions is: Whom do we shepherd towards taking more math courses and who do we discourage and why? Go to the targeted questions link for the remaining two questions.

TODOS members who present as part of a TODOS Strand or Board members who present on the TODOS Mission and Goals can apply for a $300 scholarship to offset expenses incurred. Information on contributions will be on the TODOS Homepage by August 1st.
