We hope you had an opportunity to attend "Algebra Readiness for Every Student"—NCTM's Interactive Institute for grades 6–8 in New Orleans and had a great learning experience!
Take advantage of our current online professional opportunities and look for information on upcoming 2014 Interactive Institutes coming soon.
Extend Your Learning
Join us for our new online course, Algebra Readiness for Every Student: Extended Online Professional Development—Grades 6–8.
This course will provide a participatory professional learning experience that will enable middle school mathematics teachers to understand the essential tools of early algebra. Workshops, readings, online keynote addresses, as well as a vibrant and active online community will help teachers deepen their own knowledge of the mathematics that supports formal algebra. The content is based on the book, Developing Essential Understanding of Expressions, Equations & Functions for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6–8.
This 12-week course can be taken independently or as a supplement to the Interactive Institute. The course is available both Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters for your convenience. Choose the option that best fits your schedule:
- The Fall 2013 online course begins the week of August 19, 2013 and ends by November 17, 2013. Live online sessions will be on Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. ET. All online sessions last approximately 75 minutes.
