Checkout Westfield State's Blog: Steven Strogatz' Reflection (Part 1)

Westfield State is fortunate enough to have an amazing group of math faculty involved in IBL via their Discovering the Art of Mathematics project.  Check out the latest blog post (HERE), with guest blogger Steven Strogatz, commenting as a new IBLer, and having a great time in class.  Nice!

Kudos to Chrissi, Volker, Phil, Julian, Steven, and all the Cornell math faculty interested in IBL!

IBL SIGMAA: Be a Charter Member

The Mathematical Association of America has special interest groups for members to organize around a topic or area of mathematics or mathematics education.  A special interest group of the MAA is called a SIGMAA.  The IBL community has decided to apply to form an IBL in Mathematics SIGMA, or IBL SIGMAA for short.  The purpose of the IBL SIGMAA is to have a group associated with the MAA to support the work of math instructors interested in developing, spreading, and supporting the use of IBL.

In order to create the IBL SIGMAA, charter members are needed.  Today, I am asking you to sign up!  Please use the link below to let MAA know that you are interested in being a part of the upcoming IBL SIGMAA.

Sign up to become a charter IBL SIGMAA member!

Many thanks to TJ Hitchman, Victor Piercey for spearheading this effort!
