The Global Math Department/MTBoS is a community of math teachers on the Internet. First and foremost it’s a support group for teachers in year 0 to 50 (preservice to retired!). Over time, this diverse group has grown in number and in scope of activities. This website helps newcomers navigate the variety of resources, curricula, websites, and co-authored books the community built.
Day in the Life
Do you wonder what teachers do all day? Would you like to tell the world that this job doesn't end at 2:00 when the bell rings? This is the place to read about what a day is like for educators from around the world in all types of schools.
One Good Thing
Teaching is taxing. Sometimes it can be tough to notice, let alone remember, the small but important victories - those tiny teacher and student interactions that
powerfully shape our classroom. There was a teacher who, at the end of every day, wrote down a single memorable moment on a slip of paper and put it into a jar on her desk. This community blog is our jar - to share and celebrate those stories of success.
