Runner-Up for the Inaugural Rosenthal Prize

Published by MrHonner on

rosenthal prizeLast night I was named runner-up for the inaugural Rosenthal Prize for Innovation in Math Teaching, presented by the Museum of Mathematics.

The goal of the Rosenthal Prize is to celebrate and promote creative, hands-on teaching methods in mathematics.  My work, and that of the winner, will be freely available to teachers through the museum’s website.

The awards were presented last night at MoMath’s “Teacher Preview Night”, so I was able to see the new museum firsthand.  There are many amazing exhibits that allow visitors to interact directly with the beauty, elegance, and wonder of mathematics.

I am very proud to have been recognized by MoMath for my work, and after seeing how innovative and creative the Museum of Mathematics is, being recognized by MoMath for innovation and creativity in mathematics teaching is even more meaningful.

What sort of teaching material is going to be posted on the MoMath site?

    Thanks, Michael.

    Their plan is to make the winning activities available on their website. Not sure exactly when, or in what form, but I’m sure they’ll promote the release.
