Do you want to have college students assisting you in the classroom?
Apply for the Mathematics Mentoring Methods Course

If you wish to participate in the Recruitment Project you must complete the Mentoring Workshop, offered on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 8:30 am -12:30 pm in Gould Simpson 849. Course participation is a prerequisite to involvement in this project.

The Mathematics Mentoring Methods course will bring together exemplary elementary, middle, and high school mathematics teachers and elementary mathematics coaches interested in working with and mentoring college students who will be assisting them in their classroom approximately 3 hours per week as well as those middle school teachers who are in the Arizona Teachers Initiative Masters Program. The course will explore our beliefs and current research concerning effective mathematics teaching and student learning.

CRR's Teacher Recruitment Project will provide college students an opportunity to explore mathematics education as a career option. Fifteen interested college students will be sought each semester to work with these mentors.

Responsibilities of the mentor teachers include the following.

  • Attend one tutor class meeting each semester.
          Wednesday, September 4, 2013, 4:00-4:50 PM at the UA, room 849 of the Gould Simpson Building.
          Wednesday, January 22, 2014, 4:00-4:50 PM at the UA, room 849 of the Gould Simpson Building.
          This is the time that tutors meet and select the teachers with whom they want to work.
  • Complete an evaluation form at the end of each semester for each UA student who works in your classroom.

    Teachers who have completed the Mathematics Mentoring Methods course may request tutors in their classroom in subsequent year.
