Online PD Course: The Math Forum's Problem Solving Process
http://mathforum.org/pd/process/
This course is designed for teachers, math coaches, and/or
curriculum developers who are interested in learning about the
Math Forum's problem solving process. Activities and
discussions align well with the Math Forum's Problems of the
Week but could also be used to develop techniques to use with
problem solving prompts in general.
Led by Suzanne Alejandre, this course is scheduled to span six
weeks, December 4 through January 14. Participants will have
some flexibility within each week but are expected to complete
the activities during the assigned week. Registration closes at
5 pm on Friday, November 28, 2008.

All individuals who successfully complete the course will
receive a certificate from Drexel University's School of
Education indicating that they have completed 15 hours of
professional development. This is equivalent to 1.5 Continuing
Education Units (CEUs). Current price for this course is $149.
