We are happy to announce that the Math in the Making website has been officially launched! You can find it at: mathinthemaking.terc.edu
The website includes videos and slides from the major presentations at the 2016 workshop, a short video with selections from the gallery walk, links to the pre- and post-conference online forums, a list of conference participants and our NSF Video Showcase Video. In addition, there are several written products: a summary of research on math in informal learning environments, several published reports on the Math in the Making project from informalscience.org and ASTC Dimensions, an Evaluation Report on the workshop, and an annotated list of Math in Making Resources and Activities that integrate math in natural and consequential ways.
The primary activity of Math in the Making was a convening in the spring of 2016 at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) of researchers and practitioners from both the out-of-school mathematics and the making and tinkering communities to advance the field’s understanding of how to highlight and enhance the mathematics in making experiences, develop tools and resources for informal educators, and foster collaborations for future efforts. This National Science Foundation-funded project is being jointly led by the Institute for Learning Innovation and TERC.
