Interactive Mathematics Institute for Richmond Middle School Teachers

Participants will develop an in-depth understanding of the content, be immersed in a learning environment which models best practices for delivering mathematics instruction, and engage in a school-based professional learning community. As part of each institute, teachers will design rich mathematical tasks. During the school year, they will implement the tasks in their school buildings and discuss their experiences with fellow teachers in their professional learning community. Workshops addressing the administrative supports that are necessary for meaningful mathematics instruction will be offered for the principals of participating schools.
