MoMath Folding Fridays

Folding Fridays returns to MoMath, by popular demand!  In this continuation of the spring series, origami expert Kathleen Sheridan will teach unique origami models to learners ages seven through adult.  Explore the wonders of paper folding — there’s math in every fold!

Every session will be different, and each session can stand alone.  Sign up for one session, or enroll in the full 10-class series at a special discounted rate.  Session dates include:

  • Thursday, June 25, at 3:00 pm EDT (New York)
  • Thursday, July 2, at 2:30pm EDT (New York)
  • Every Friday, July 10 through August 28, at 3:00 pm EDT (New York)

To participate, you’ll need several sheets of printer paper as well as several sheets of square paper (size should be 5.5″ – 8.5”).  Origami paper is preferred (check out the offerings available to ship now from Additions, the online shop at MoMath), or you can cut your own squares from any paper.

Dial-A-Teacher Now Available for Grades K–5
The UFT has re-opened its Dial-A-Teacher Program, a homework help line for students, run by classroom teachers. This resource is available from 4:00–7:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, for students in grades K–5. Due to limitations caused by school building closures, the help line is currently only available for ELA and math homework from teachers speaking English. The UFT is hoping to expand to other subjects, grades, and languages soon.
For more information, please go to https://www.uft.org/your-union/uft-programs/dial-a-teacher

Alternative Process for Issuing Working Papers During COVID-19 School Closures
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has provided an alternative process for issuing working papers for students between the ages of 14–17, during the COVID-19-related school closures. Parents/guardians and minors can still complete the AT-17 Application for Employment Certificate form and email the completed form to the school or district issuing official. A PDF version of the AT-17 Application for Employment Certificate form, which can be completed and signed electronically, is available on NYSED’s Employment of Minors website. After the form is submitted, the issuing school-level official will schedule a video conference (Microsoft Teams or Google Meet) with the minor, and if required, the parent or guardian; required documentation will be shared during the video conference. Information on working papers is available on the DOE webpage for families.
