AAAS SEA Change Math

SEA: STEMM (Science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine) Equity Achievement

SEA Change (a program of AAAS) aims to advance institutional transformation in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion, especially in colleges and universities.

 

TPSE is leading the effort to reach those goals within the mathematical sciences. A diverse group of 15 leaders, TPSE’s Math DAFDG (for Department Awards Framework Drafting Group) will produce a set of guidelines to help departments:

  • Understand how their policies and practices relate to equity and inclusion

  • Identify their most important gaps

  • Develop tangible action plans to address those gaps

TPSE Leadership Institute

Fostering a diverse group of leaders within the mathematics community, prepared and well-positioned to take on future challenges at the local and national levels, from leadership positions at their institutions, in professional organizations, and within Federal agencies.

Tech Tip Videos

The Teaching Strategies and Practices sub-group of TPSE has commissioned a set of short videos to explain various technology tools that can be used to engage students in the learning of mathematics.

The videos give a brief description of the tool, the pedagogical purpose, and an explanation of how the tool can support the learning goals of mathematics courses and enhance the student’s experience.

The video shows the tool in use from both faculty and student perspective. At present, videos commissioned are for Jamboard, Desmos, Geogebra, Flipgrid, Panopto, WonderMe, GoogleSheets, Purusall, and Discord. These videos will soon appear on the newly revised TPSE website and available to all classroom teachers.
