EVENT: The Future of Math Education in Ohio
High-quality math education has never been more important for our students.
A recent study from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the workforce finds that over their lifetimes, students who majored in engineering, computer science or business (all math-heavy fields) earned as much as 50 percent more than those who majored in the humanities, the arts, education and psychology. All Ohio students will face more rigorous expectations for math learning as Ohio transitions to the Common Core academic content standards in just a few years – but how can the Buckeye State’s math teachers, curriculum designers, and students adjust? That’s the topic of an exciting discussion next month in Columbus.
Keith Devlin, Stanford University professor, Carl Sagan Prize Winner, and NPR’s “math guy”, will offer a keynote presentation followed by a robust panel discussion featuring David Ferrero, chief STEM advisor for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Brian Boyd, founding principal of the Dayton Regional STEM school; and other state and local math education experts.
The event will be held Tuesday, February 21, from 11:30 to 2:30pm (lunch will be provided) at the ESC of Central Ohio.
RSVP to Elaine Organ: Elaine.email@example.com by Wednesday, February 15. Space is limited, and the event will be webcast live.
The event is presented free of charge by the ESC of Central Ohio, Nord Family Foundation, Thomas B. Fordham Institute.
