The Connecticut State Department of Education has  released the Algebra 1 Model Curriculum! This  remarkable collection of instructional materials required  many years of research and development, an intensive, 3-year field study involving teachers and students from all over CT, and countless grant-funded and volunteer hours of writing, revising, and compiling. The accompanying assessments will be made available to Connecticut teachers through a district representative. Access to the materials is through a Moodle site; directions can be found here

The annual Connecticut American Statistical Association K-12 statistics poster competition is underway! The contest is sponsored by a non-profit organization hoping to promote math literacy among K-12 students. They have math educators and math/statistics professionals from around the area to judge the competition. Schools and students are given awards and students with winning posters are given cash prizes. Learn more at this website.
