- Kate McCann, our co-director for education has been awarded an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educators Fellowship, and will be working in a Congressional office on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC from early Sept 2018 through July 2019.
- Enrollement is full for this summer's Governor's Institute in Mathematical Sciences, which will be held Jun 24-29 at UVM. This residential, week-long accelerated math program at the University of Vermont lets Vermont's most talented young mathematicians explore many different applications of and careers in math, gain terrific skills, and make new friends from all over Vermont. It is presented in partnership with the Vermont State Math Coalition.
We are profoundly saddened by the loss on September 10 of Ken Gross, a founding member of the Vermont Mathematics Coalition and a major force in mathematics and mathematics education in Vermont and beyond. Ken cofounded the Vermont Governorís Institute in the Mathematical Sciences, and the Vermont Mathematics Initiative, designed to improve mathematical knowledge of elementary- and middle-school teachers and enhance their ability to inculcate in their students a love and enjoyment of mathematics. To date, the VMI has trained more than 500 Vermont teachers to become mathematics teacher-leaders in their schools and districts. The VMI model has been adopted in eight states and Australia.
