The Boston College Mathematics Institute will be hosting a middle
school mathematics content institute July 16, 17, 18, 21, 22.

This five day course will address the National Council of Teachers of
Mathematics Principles and Standards for School Mathematics Content
Strands: Number & Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, Data
Analysis & Probability.

The course goals are:
1. to deepen mathematical knowledge in particular by examining
multiple approaches to topics and forging connections between strands;
2. to illustrate how teaching practice can be improved by illustrating
how content can be effectively delivered.

Plentiful examples of practice will be drawn from the following five
units of the standards-based Connected Mathematics Project:
Frogs, Fleas and Painted Cubes
Growing, Growing, Growing
Looking for Pythagoras
Kaleidoscopes, Hubcaps, and Mirrors
Samples and Populations.
TIME
8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
