Edfinity Award Opportunity for Educators
Sep 15, 2019
Edfinity and MichMATYC wish to recognize an educator who has made substantial efforts to further the cause of equitable access to high-quality homework and/or course materials in mathematics.
The award is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Award #1758301 titled “Edfinity Award for Technology-enabled Innovation in Improving Student Access to Quality Learning Resources” does not require the work product or outcome to be OER-based - it only requires it to be an innovative alternative to expensive commercial publisher offerings - one that bears the potential for increasing equitable access at scale. Ideally, the effort should have been independently validated to some degree through classroom adoption or usage. The awardee will be selected by the MichMATYC Executive Board at its discretion and the award will be administered during the 2019 Conference at Henry Ford College. The award includes a cash disbursement of $300.
Educators are invited to apply to MichMATYC to be considered for the award. Please fill out the form and it will be forwarded to the MichMATYC Executive Board for consideration.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Sam Bazzi.

This is an invitation for you to check out, use, and contribute to Convergence,
an online MAA resource where history, mathematics, and teaching converge.

These materials include hundreds of colorful images, as well as animated and interactive features unavailable in print publications.
Make Convergence your go-to resource for the history of mathematics and its uses in teaching!
