Summer Academies Connected to Yearround Professional Development
The
yearly summer mathematics academies provide teachers with an indepth
study of mathematics content and connections between the advanced math
they are learning and the math they teach at their grade level.
2.
Continuous Professional Development
 Align Assessments with
Standards,
 Assist districts in implementing
new standardsbased curricula,
 Assist in developing and
implementing ongoing assessments, and
 Provide math workshops
and courses for teachers in key areas such as geometry and measurement,
algebraic thinking, and number and operations.
3.
School District Partnerships
 Build leadership capacity
of District Leadership Teams, mathematics specialists, administrators,
and teacher coaches.
 Establish a culture
of continual professional learning and collaboration.
4.
Institutional Partner Collaboration
 Support additional universities
in improving and expanding mathematics education,
 Build a statewide cadre
of mathematics leaders representing all stakeholders, and
 Align statewide efforts
in the improvement of mathematics teaching and learning.
5.
Webbased Math Resources
A webbased Knowledge Network
will facilitate coordination and communication between the different components
of this project. It will support the communication between the diverse
communities of public school administrators, teachers, mathematicians,
and university math educators.
