The Effective Use of Mathematics Instructional Materials Project


The Effective Use of Mathematics Instructional Materials project at Education Development Center, Inc., is currently interviewing educators about the experience of selecting mathematics curricula. If your district is now in the process of selecting mathematics materials, or has selected materials within the past two years, they would like to speak with you or someone in your district who has been involved in this process.

Please send your contact information to (mcc@edc.org).

If possible, include some brief information about your district (urban/suburban/rural) and the title of the mathematics series you are currently using.

Math Camps & Summer Programs


The Math Forum maintains an annotated list of math camps and summer programs. The list includes residential opportunities, some just for girls, in the states of California, Washington, Minnesota, New Jersey, Ohio, Maryland, and Massachusetts.

For many of these programs, the deadline to apply falls in the next few weeks.
