The IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI) has announced two free professional development opportunities that kick off next month.
In "Scaling the Teaching Curve," middle school and high school teachers do mathematics, think about teaching, and share in professional development activities. Weekend workshops are coming to these cities:
- Chicago, Illinois - Tampa, Florida - Washington, D.C. - Seattle/Tacoma, Washington - San Francisco, California - Denver, Colorado - Minneapolis, Minnesota
To deepen your understanding of rigid motions, dilations, and other plane geometry transformations, participate in the online course "Geometry Transformed!"
