ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
Your participation and input in this year’s pilot session will help shape the development of the first annual Mathematics Teaching and Learning Institute (scheduled for summer 2019). MTLI seeks to build a partnership among high school mathematics teachers across public and private schools. Teachers will create or tweak existing lessons around a shared problem of practice based on presentations given by the speakers. Community and team building activities are at the core of what we practice and educators will build deeper connections with each other, share best practices in teaching mathematics, and se reach all types of learners.

WHAT TO BRING
Teachers will create or revise existing math lessons based on presentations that encourage differentiated instruction and supporting-all-students strategies. Please bring three lessons, unit plans, and/or worksheets. The first piece should be something that works well in the classroom. The second should be a piece that needs some slight tweaking but largely works for most students; the third piece is either “in development” or needs a good deal of reworking.

Also, you may want to bring a sweater since the museum tends to get chilly.

CREDITS
At the completion of the institute, attendees will earn a certificate for completing 7 hours of professional development.
