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
