Our next Dinner Meeting features Gail Burrill, speaking on “The Wonders and Joys of Mathematics and Statistics: Catalyzing Change in School Mathematics” on Friday November 16. We are trying a new location for this one: The Des Plaines Elks Club; dinner will be served family style, and prices are a little lower. Please RSVP for dinner! PLUS, Gail is running a workshop on Saturday, November 17th (9:30-11:00 am) at Glenbrook South High School: “Using Inquiry to Build Thinking Classrooms“. You MUST preregister to attend the workshop as space is limited! (And we have special pricing if you attend the dinner on Friday and the workshop on Saturday.) Pre-register here!

A big THANK YOU! to Sheila Hardin for a great opening to this year’s dinner meetings!
