Education Development Center (EDC) Workshops

Developers of the newest NSF-funded mathematics curriculum programs, Think Math! (K-5) and CME Project (high school), are introducing new content-focused mathematics workshop for elementary and secondary teachers this summer in Boston, MA.

Developing Mathematical Habits of Mind -- CME Project Workshops

Participants will engage in an approach to mathematics that centers on developing mathematical Habits of Mind. Those who are interested in content-focused professional development as well as those who are planning to implement CME Project are welcome to register. CME Project is a new four-year, NSF-funded high school curriculum that is student-centered, problem-based, and organized around the familiar courses of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus.

Building Number and Algebra -- the Think Math! Way Workshops

In two workshops, one emphasizing grades K-2 and the other grades 3-5, participants will explore how to build skill and understanding in addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, fractions/decimals, and algebraic thinking/language.

Teaching with Data Simulations

Danielle Dupuis and Joan Garfield, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, compiled this material. It was originally developed through the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics (CAUSE).:

  • What Is Teaching with Data Simulations?
  • Why Teach Using Data Simulations?
  • How to Teach Using Data Simulations
  • Available Technologies
  • Classroom Examples
  • References on Teaching with Data Simulations
