For those who teach...
Sponsored by the Leadership in Mathematics program, four Saturday morning sessions a year are held on topics relevant to all who teach and learn mathematics. Teachers and administrators from the tri-state area meet for coffee, bagels and a facilitated session on a selected topic in the teaching of mathematics.
The sessions consist of activities and discussion and often provide resource materials. There is ample opportunity to share ideas and concerns with other professionals. Topics may be curriculum specific ("Making the Fraction, Decimal & Percent connection") or instruction specific ("Teaching Mathematics in the Inclusion Classroom").
