Teacher Workshop Schedule
Our mission is to support educators in their quest to provide quality instruction to elementary, middle school, and high school mathematics students. Some teachers have requested refresher high school level mathematics sessions to gain perspective regarding what their students will need to know for future courses. Some teachers want to see alternative ways to present particular topics. Teachers have requested support in using technology to enhance their lessons. In response to these requests, the Center for Recruitment and Retention is pleased to announce a series of teacher workshops. Our intent is to provide experiences to deepen mathematical understandings.Space for each workshop is limited. You are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Priority is given to teachers from partnership schools and districts.
If you have questions about the workshops, or if you have trouble using the registration forms, please contact Ginny Bohme.
Spring 2015 Workshops
Beyond Linear Equations
We have become fairly familiar with unique and interesting investigations for linear functions, but what about other functions? What are some meaningful tasks we could use for these other functions? How can we create our own investigations? Join this interactive webinar where we will experience investigations that make rational functions, quadratics, and other functions come alive. In addition to attendance at each of the 1 hour webinars, teachers will be required to submit an assigned lesson and reflection in order to receive credit.
This workshop is intended for teachers in grades 8-12, but those in earlier grades are welcome to come & stretch their understanding.
