Professor Monique Chyba has conducted a long series of creative and out-of-the-box outreach activities including a program at the Institute for Human Services. The latest is participation in the so-called Geek Meet on Sunday at Magic Island, where her team brought a drone and some robotics.
On April 2, Prof. Michael Nakamaye from the University of New Mexico visited the Math Teachers’ Circle of Hawaii. He led a 2-hour math activity on bicycles, gears, and ratios. Forty-seven teachers from Oahu came to campus for the session, and four teachers from neighbor islands joined in on the fun via Google Hangouts.
The Math Teachers’ Circle of Hawaii is a professional learning community of K-12 teachers who come together for mathematics activities and pedagogical discussions. In the 2015-2016 academic year, we’ve been meeting on the first Saturday of each month, from 8:30am – 12:30pm in Webster Hall room 101 (UH Manoa campus). Our last meeting this year will be on Saturday, May 7. Drop-ins and visitors are always welcome!
