 Leadership Program (TLP).

 At the 2018 Summer Session of the IAS Park City Mathematics
 Institute (PCMI), teachers will participate in working groups;

 conceptual knowledge and procedural fluency; and take
 a course on harmonic analysis.

 Financial support is available to attend this residential
 program, which takes place in Park City, Utah, from
 July 1-21, 2018. Six quarter-credits of 400-level mathematics
 are available from the University of Washington.
