2013 Math Teachers' Circle Highlights.

What is a Math Teachers’ Circle?

A Math Teachers’ Circle is a place where middle school math teachers and mathematicians come together to explore problem solving approaches with interesting and fun math problems and to share classroom experiences and successes.

The cost of the workshop is only $50, thanks to the PERK grant. For those interested in earning three hours continuing education credit, the cost is an additional $255 ($85 per credit hour).
