2015 Summer Mathematics Academy

Preparing Students to be College & Career Ready begins prior to high school.
By the time students enter high school, they should have experienced an elementary and middle school curriculum
that is full of rigor and relevance.

Attend GCTM’s 2015 Summer Academy for K-8 teachers:

  • Provide information and support for revisions to the K-8 mathematics curriculum.
  • Experience hands-on activities and lessons to boost student understandings.
  • Find out how to make your students’ thinking visible.
  • Enhance your questioning skills as a tool to assess student learning.
  • Utilize technology as a learning tool for students.
  • And much, much more!!

All of this in a two-day professional development opportunity! Each session will be grade-specific and held at your choice of four locations/dates. Sessions will run from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. each day with a 90 minute lunch break.

Unlike some of the past versions of the academies, this summer's events will not be restricted to just folks associated with public schools. Anybody can register and attend -- private school teachers, home school teachers, etc., all are welcome!
