[Stemed-l] Summer Mathematics Professional Development Opportunities




Summer Mathematics Professional Development Opportunities

Offered by:  Modeling Mathematics Through Mathematical Practices
A Collaboration with Lesley University, Springfield Public Schools,
and Easthampton Public Schools
This course carries 3 graduate credits or 45 PDPs.
Number Theory: The Number System
In this course, participants will develop a solid conceptual
understanding of the branch of mathematics known as number theory.
Topics include properties of numbers including extensive study of
rational numbers, arithmetic and geometric series, combinations,
permutations, divisibility rules, the use of geometric and other
representations for finding prime factorizations, greatest common
factors, and an in-depth look at Pascal's Triangle.

Participants will also investigate the fundamental theorem of
arithmetic, and computing in different bases to reinforce how and why
our place-value system works. Participants will leave with strategies
with which to actively engage their students in the mathematics
learning.

When:  August 15, 16, 20, 26, 27; September 9, 10
Monday, Tuesday, Saturdays: 8:00am - 4:00pm
Fridays: 4:30pm - 8:30pm
Where: Duggan Middle School, Springfield
How: go to our online Intent to
Register<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfMkd4yZyg6UUaF_FxgQqImE5liSzpGTt5WOTui1Tc6yVTGOQ/viewform>
form

Offered by:  Rational Approach to Proficiency
A collaboration with Lesley University; Holyoke, Easthampton, and West
Springfield Public Schools
The course carries 3 graduate credits or 45 PDPs.
Ratio, Rate, and Proportion
A course, designed and taught by Dr. Anne M. Collins, participants
will explore the role of ratio and proportion in mathematics and the
world around us. Participants will also develop the concept of ratio
by using scale factors and graphing models, explore proportion by
using linear, inverse, and joint proportionality models, and observe,
analyze and contrast multiple representations through individual and
group problem solving tasks.

When:  August 2, 3, 4; August 9, 10, 11
Time each day: 8:00 AM - 4 :00 PM
Where: Holyoke High School
