Chatting Up the National Math Panel

By Sean Cavanagh — May 04, 2009 1 min read

Roughly a year after the National Mathematics Advisory Panel released a major report on teaching and learning in that subject, two people who served on the panel will answer questions in an Ed Week forum. It’s an online “chat” to be held tomorrow, Tuesday, at 2 p.m. ET.

One of our guests is Francis M. “Skip” Fennell, former president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The other is Vern Williams, a math teacher at Longfellow Middle School in Falls Church, Va. You can watch the chat and submit questions (try to keep them short!) up to a half hour in advance, from this site. These two have a lot to say about math teaching.

UPDATE: The transcript of the hour-long chat is available here. Thanks to our viewers for their great questions.
