Summer Academies Connected to Year-round Professional Development
yearly summer mathematics academies provide teachers with an in-depth
study of mathematics content and connections between the advanced math
they are learning and the math they teach at their grade level.
Continuous Professional Development
- Align Assessments with
- Assist districts in implementing
new standards-based 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.
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.
Institutional Partner Collaboration
- Support additional universities
in improving and expanding mathematics education,
- Build a state-wide cadre
of mathematics leaders representing all stake-holders, and
- Align statewide efforts
in the improvement of mathematics teaching and learning.
Web-based Math Resources
A web-based 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.
A Masters of
Arts in Teaching Mathematics (MAT) is a program designed for mathematics
teachers by the Curriculum & Instruction and Mathematical Sciences
Department. For more information contact: Dr. James O'Donnell at 575-646-2290.
