Dear Math Woodies,
I haven't written via this forum before, but I hope this reaches you.
It is in regard to a teaching opportunity this summer in Hong Kong.
For the past two summers I have been involved with a High Achievers
program at the Hong Kong International School. It is a program for very
bright Chinese students from the local HK schools. Age-wise these would
be like incoming 10th graders although their math background is FAR more
sophisticated than American students. The session goes from July 16 to
August 7. You teach 4 hours of math per day (they will also have 2 more
hours of English writing and 2 hours of recreational). The curricula
centers about problem solving and then some general strands of finite
differences, graphing calulators, etc.
They will provide economy airfare, provide housing (probably in faculty
apartment) and a salary of $3,500 (I believe).
We thought we had the staff filled but two people have had to drop out.
If you are interested, please email me ASAP so that I can get this taken
care of within the next week. I will also be sending this message to
the Council of Presidential Awardees in Math listserv and expect many
inquiries from them as well. Let me know.
