Who Are We?
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.
The two main ways teachers can access Global Math Department content is through our newsletter and through our weekly webinars on Tuesday nights at 9 PM Eastern. You can sign up for one of our free webinars at our hosting site, Big Marker. Many of our webinars have also been curated in podcast form and have been posted to our Global Math Department YouTube channel. The work behind the scenes is run by dedicated volunteers who strive to find presenters and blog posts across grade bands and mathematical topics. To get involved, check out one of our webinars or subscribe to our newsletter.
It takes the help and creativity of many people to run The Global Math Department. Scroll down to learn more about our team. And if you’d like to help out or have a speaker to suggest, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
