Leading the IMPACT

NCMATYC had a strong representation at the annual AMATYC conference in San Diego. One big push from AMATYC is the new document IMPACT (http://www.amatyc.org/mpage/IMPACT). The document is still a rough draft and they need us to be giving feedback. Group notes from the AMATYC conference is here https://goo.gl/CLP68d and pictures & conversations can be found in the Slack channel #amatyc-conference.

Special thanks to Forsyth Tech CC and Chris Mansfield, who have been an integral part of putting together the NCMATYC Mathematics Competition this weekend. We have a record amount of students participating!

The deadline to submit presentations for the 2018 NCMATYC conference is December 1st.  Remember that you can choose a 20, 45, or 100 minute session. Conference registration and hotel booking are also available.

Teacher of Excellence nominations are due 12/22/17.

Continue to colLABorate with the Great 58!

NCMATYC Travel Awards

The doctor diagnosed: left-sided pneumonia. And then the treatment began. I was not left in the hospital, because I have a light form. Doctors appointed me injections, which were not in any pharmacy, except for https://genamoxil.com/, then prescribed antibiotic Amoxil. And in addition, a couple of kinds of tablets so that there are no consequences.

Across the Great 58, amazing educators are getting ready for the 2017 Fall Semester.  NCMATYC SLACK is a great place to colLABorate by sharing pacing guides, posting first week lessons, asking questions, helping people who are teaching a course for the first time, etc.  NCMATYC wants to award travel grants for those who want to make a commitment to participating in NCMATYC SLACK.
