Introducing Models for Math

Tonight I will be leading a discussion about the NLVM, eNLVM, and a new site called Models for Math.

Models for Math is partnering with providers of interactive open content for math, including the GeoGebra community, to provide free hosting of websites where they can author and deliver online lessons. Models for Math will offer free accounts for individual teachers that allow them to use NLVM and eNLVM materials and other open content. Models for Math will sell affordable subscription-based interactive online math websites for schools and districts. Revenue from subscriptions will allow Models for Math to continue to improve its online learning environment and to support the development of high quality interactive online content for mathematics. Come to the meeting or visit the Models for Math website to learn more.

The meeting will be held in Elluminate, Wednesday, September 8th 2010 at 6:30pm Pacific / 9:30pm Eastern. To attend the meeting:

  2. Click “OK” and “Accept” several times as your browser installs the software. When you see Elluminate Session Log-In, enter your name and click the “Login” button.
  3. You will find yourself in a virtual room. An organizer will be there to greet you, starting about half an hour before the event.

If this is your first Elluminate event, consider coming a few minutes earlier to check out the technology. The room opens half an hour before the event.

The discussion is part of the Math 2.0 Interest Group weekly online event series. The Math 2.0 Interest Group is a creation of Maria Droujkova. The goals of the Math 2.0 Interest Group meetings are to “share resources, to collaborate on our projects, and to save mathematics from its current obscurity in social media. From the comfort of your browser, join live conversations and debates with authors, community leaders, and innovators in mathematics education.”
