Innovative Mathematics and the Rosenthal Prize

About This Webinar

Join us as we explore a selection of Rosenthal Prize winning mathematics lessons. The Rosenthal Prize is an annual prize given for innovative mathematics lessons by the National Museum of Mathematics in New York. We will discuss what makes these mathematics lessons innovative and virtually participate in some of these lesson activities. We will wrap the session up by describing how you can submit your own lesson for the Rosenthal Prize as well as some tips for making your submission stand out. We will also discuss how to apply to be part of the Rosenthal Summer Institute, a three-day, expense paid, in person opportunity to network with educators from around the country.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Innovative Mathematics and the Rosenthal Prize
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
