Building a Community of Mathematics and Science Teachers for Southern and Eastern Ohio
Date: Saturday 21 September 2013, 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM, at Ohio University in Athens.
Third Annual Appalachian Ohio Mathematics and Science Teaching Research Symposium
Saturday 15 September 2012, 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Morton Hall 235, Ohio University, Athens, OH 45701-2979
The Appalachian Ohio Mathematics and Science Teaching Research Symposium, formerly known as the Choose Appalachian Teaching Research Symposium, was attended by 103 mathematics and science pre-service and in-service teachers, school administrators, and university and college faculty and staff. The symposium fulfilled its intended purpose: to build and strengthen mathematics and science teaching throughout southern and eastern Ohio through the building and fostering of relationships among pre-service and in-service teachers and university and college faculty. This year's theme was "bringing STEM teaching and learning to the classroom."
Keynote speaker Tom Reardon, a high school mathematics teacher and mathematics educational consultant from eastern Ohio who is nationally well-known and well-regarded, discussed the effective use of technology in the classroom and demonstrated various technologies that can help teachers incorporate STEM topics in their teaching.
The research symposium team wishes to thank the speakers, the volunteers, and the participants, especially the CAT scholars, the Noyce scholars, and the Woodrow Wilson teaching fellows. We also wish to thank the Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program administered by the Ohio Board of Regents, the National Science Foundation, which funds the Noyce Scholarship Program, and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
Second Annual CAT Research Symposium
Saturday 17 September 2011, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Grover Center 115W, Ohio University, Athens, OH 45701-2979
The CAT Research Symposium, which is for pre-service and in-service mathematics and science teachers in Grades 7-12, involved approximately 70 participants, including teachers and other school personnel throughout Appalachian Ohio as well as students and professors from Marietta College, Muskingum University, Ohio University and its regional campuses, Shawnee State University, Southern State Community College, and the University of Rio Grande. The symposium focused on mathematics, science, and technology education. The keynote speaker, Mike Smith, is a master science teacher from Big Walnut High School, who has expanded his school's physics program from 5 students to 5 physics classes—through active student engagement in doing science. Mr. Smith is a national instructor for the Teachers Teaching with Technology program and a national event coordinator for the Science Olympiad. His keynote address was followed by CAT scholar presentations and other contributed presentations. To view the CAT Research Symposium schedule, click here.
The CAT team wishes to thank the symposium speakers, volunteers, participants, and our partner institutions: Marietta College, Muskingum University, Shawnee State University, and the University of Rio Grande. We also wish to express our thanks to the Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program administered by the Ohio Board of Regents.
First Annual CAT Research Symposium
