  • THE ANNUAL CONVENTION 777

    LETS GOOn To Chicago December 1 and 2, 1933

    More than ever before it is imperative that you attend the ChicagoConvention of the Central Association of Science and Mathematics Teachersif you expect to keep pace with the rapid strides being made in mathe-matics and science. A Century of Progress in these fields has wrought manychanges in content and methods of teaching, and in spite of present dayreverses in the field of education, it is essential that all teachers gather forthe purpose of learning about these new methods and new ideas from out-standing experts and teachers. The Central Association provides such agathering place each year and furnishes the very best talent that can beprocured to address teachers and stimulate among them discussions of cur-rent problems of great importance.

    Teachers leave these meetings with an inspiration that makes it possiblefor them to attack both old and new problems with renewed vigor. Theycarry away with them memories of ringing addresses by prominent leadersin their respective fields and are stirred by the phenominal demonstra-tions that are given every year. Above all, the new contacts made withteachers from other sections of the country and the consequent exchangeof ideas is more than worth the time and money spent in attending one ofthese conventions.Beyond a doubt, the Central Association carries on its programs the out-

    standing mathematicians, scientists, educators, and teachers in the coun-try, and the results of many research problems of great importance bothin content matter and classroom procedure are presented. The associationalso publishes a journal, SCHOOL SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS, the onlyjournal of its kind in the country and conceded to be one of the out-standing publications. In view of these facts it is difficult to see how anyprogressive teacher can afford to miss these meetings. And it may be statedhere, that the 33rd convention promises to be one of the most inspiring ifnot the greatest of meetings so far held.
