#### Event: Think Math! and CME Professional Development Workshops

Start:

Aug 4, 2008

End:

Aug 8, 2008

Location:

Boston, MA

Description:

Authors of the newest NSF-funded mathematics curriculum programs

Participants will engage in an approach to mathematics that centers on developing the Habits of Mind that underlie high school mathematics and learn effective techniques to help students think like mathematicians while developing the skills, topics, and techniques of mathematics. Workshops use approaches and content in CME Project, a new four-year, NSF-funded high school curriculum organized around the familiar courses of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus. Workshops are facilitated by CME Project developers and experienced teachers and are ideal for secondary teachers, coaches, curriculum coordinators, and administrators.

These workshops will present effective approaches to elementary mathematics content areas across grades. Participants will explore how to build skill and understanding in addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, fractions/decimals, and algebraic thinking/language. Workshops use materials from Think Math, a new NSF-funded, comprehensive K-5 mathematics curriculum program and are facilitated by
