MATH FORUM PD: A SPECTRUM OF OPPORTUNITIES

The Math Forum is proud to be a part of Drexel University, and
thrilled that we can now offer our professional development
resources in everything from community-facilitated, affordable,
self-paced workshops to an online Masters in Mathematics
Education.

http://mathforum.org/pd/

Visit us at NCSM and NCTM to meet the faculty and staff who
lead many of our professional development courses and programs.
You can also meet some teachers who have taken our courses
across the spectrum, from online workshops to auditing our
Master's courses.

All Math Forum PD opportunities are based on our knowledge of
how students develop as mathematical problem solvers and
writers (honed by over 17 years of working with students online
and in classrooms as they solve tough problems and communicate
their ideas) and our commitment to student-centered,
problem-based learning. What's new is that there are now so
many ways to join us; just choose whatever fits your needs
and resources.
