The Global Math Department is a community of math teachers on the Internet. We communicate via Twitter and blogs so we use the nickname Math Twitter Blogosphere (MTBoS). 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. We’ve built resources, curricula, websites, and co-authored a book. We run online workshop sessions, problem-solving groups, and a weekly “department meeting” via webinar. Our online connections have even spilled over into “real life”—we have an annual conference TMathC. We are passionate math teachers who take pride in sharing our best math teaching ideas. We have different contexts and experiences yet collaborate across all of our diverse situations.
