Attention all K-16 Georgia mathematics teachers and coaches!!!!

As you probably already know, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) annual conference is going to be in Georgia this spring. It will be held in Atlanta on March 21-24, 2007. As if that wasn't exciting enough, there's more - we want to use this opportunity to SHOWCASE EXEMPLARY WORK OF GEORGIA'S STUDENTS. Your help is needed in collecting student work from all grade levels (Pre K - 16), as well as superb work by teacher candidates. Your assistance will help to highlight the excellent work Georgia students are producing for the rest of the math world to see. Projects that are in line with the new Georgia Performance Standards may be placed on the Georgia Department of Education website. And projects that show exemplary use of technology may be placed on the Georgia Public Broadcasting website. So, as you begin your school year, please allow us to borrow student work for this exciting project.

Please share this information with teachers, mathematics coaches, mathematics coordinators, and principals. A downloadable application AND consent form can be found below. Once the application and consent form are complete, please submit it to the co-chair of the Student Exhibit Committee:

Desha L. Williams
1072 Shumard Lane
McDonough, GA 30252.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Desha L. Williams at, Peggy Pool at, or Linda Flynn at Student work samples may be retrieved on Saturday, May 19, 2007 from a central location which will be announced prior to the conference. Teachers will be contacted via e-mail with the location's address.

Thank you, and HAVE FUN creating AWESOME mathematics projects to share at the conference!!
