To all my readers from the Philippines, our new book on Lesson Study is now off the press. The book is titled Lesson Study: Planning Together, Learning Together. It is a documentation of the actual experiences of teachers and students in mathematics and science classes as well as learning that arise while doing Lesson Study. It was published by the the University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED).
The book is 258 pages and costs Php300.00. You can buy it at the UP NISMED Bookstore in the University of the Philippines, Diliman.
By the way, I am also glad to tell that I am one of the writers of this book. 🙂

During the APEC Conference last February 13-16, 2014 in Tokyo, I attended a lecture of Prof. Ivan Vysotsky of Moscow Institute of Open Education (Russia). One interesting website he presented was the International Open Bank of Mathematical Problems.
Basically, country members of the website can upload mathematics questions which can then be used by other member countries or translated to their own language. The website is basically new and during his lecture, Prof. Vysotsky was inviting for collaborators. You can visit the website and see the contact page if you are interested.
Currently, the website is available in English, Russian, French, German and Chinese.
I have learned recently from one of the comments in my blog that the MathCounts is conducting a math video-making competition. The name of the contest is the Math Video Challenge where students choose a problem to be solved and create a video about it. The video can be submitted MathCounts.
The finalists, according to the MathCounts website, will present their videos in the 2014 Raytheon MATHCOUNTS National Competition. The winner will receive a scholarship.
The MathCounts Math Video challenge is currently on its third year.
For those who are interested to join, you can check out the Quick Start Guide or visit the MathCounts Video Challenge page.
