Professional development program
Tuesdays, October 8 through December 3, 8:30 am – 10:00 am
Are you considering becoming a math educator or getting more involved in math outreach? MoMath is now offering a special opportunity to participate in an eight-week professional development program, Math Progressions. Discuss classroom best practices and learn about pedagogical topics such as fixed versus growth mindsets, setting expectations, handling difficult situations, and increasing student engagement. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to practice your skills in a group setting using creative math sessions focused on cryptography, geometry, graph theory, probability, and topology. Classes will meet Tuesday mornings from October 8 through December 3, excluding November 5, from 8:30 am to 10:00 am; the program registration fee is $500.
To apply, please email the following three items to firstname.lastname@example.org: a cover letter; a current résumé, including grade point averages; and a 150- to 500-word statement describing your views on mathematics or a life experience you have had related to mathematics. Accepted applicants will be notified by September 24. Tuition discounts may be available for those with demonstrated financial need.
