Education Development Center (EDC) Workshops
Developers of the newest NSFfunded mathematics curriculum programs, Think Math! (K5) and CME Project (high school), are introducing new contentfocused mathematics workshop for elementary and secondary teachers this summer in Boston, MA.
Developing Mathematical Habits of Mind  CME Project Workshops
http://www.edc.org/cmeproject/
Participants will engage in an approach to mathematics that centers on developing mathematical Habits of Mind. Those who are interested in contentfocused professional development as well as those who are planning to implement CME Project are welcome to register. CME Project is a new fouryear, NSFfunded high school curriculum that is studentcentered, problembased, and organized around the familiar courses of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus.
Building Number and Algebra  the Think Math! Way Workshops
http://www.edc.org/thinkmath/
In two workshops, one emphasizing grades K2 and the other grades 35, participants will explore how to build skill and understanding in addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, fractions/decimals, and algebraic thinking/language.
