Would you like to:
- Better prepare your students for NJ's statewide assessments?
- Engage your students in the lessons that you teach?
- Learn more mathematics content that is relevant to your classroom?
- Incorporate standards-based hands-on activities that motivate your students?
- Relate what you are doing in the classroom to "real world" applications?
Twenty-five, highly interactive, one-day professional development workshops for middle school math teachers are offered during the 2018-2019 school year. These workshops address a broad range of topics that are applicable to all curricula taught by grades 6-8 teachers of mathematics.
These workshops are sponsored by the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New Jersey (AMTNJ) with the cooperation of DIMACS (the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science) and the Rutgers Department of Mathematics.
All workshops are connected to New Jersey's state standards in mathematics. All of these workshops will help you better prepare students for the statewide assessments and provide the resources and knowledge that you need to generate new and exciting standards-based lessons.
All workshops are full-day workshops at which participants will earn six (6) professional development hours. All workshops will take place on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Participants may attend single or multiple workshops in any order.
The fee for each full-day workshop is $205 ($10 discount for each online registration). Discounts are available for multiple registrations on a single purchase order.
Although some workshops address overlapping issues, teachers who attend multiple workshops will benefit from experiencing the different approaches workshop leaders have to helping students meet the challenges of the state standards and assessments. Our instructors are among the most experienced and respected workshop leaders in the state. The workshop topics are based on feedback and recommendations from New Jersey teachers and administrators.
You will leave these workshops with valuable tools to motivate your students, stimulate their curiosity, and promote a more positive attitude towards mathematics.
