A mathematical opportunity for elementary teachers

We’ve got an exciting prospect in the works for elementary school teachers. This year, we’ll be offering professional development in mathematics in the form of Teacher Circles. Starting in October, these weekly gatherings will be places for 2nd-5th grade teachers to explore deep ideas in mathematics and math teaching. The full description is here. and elementary teachers can sign up now. The best part is that thanks to a grant from Washington STEM, we can offer these Teacher Circles at no cost; they’re free to participating teachers.

We’re pretty thrilled about it, and right now, we need to get the word out. That’s where we call on you. Do you know elementary teachers in the Seattle school district who would like this opportunity to work with us on taking their math classes to the next level? Do you know principals who support this kind of work for their teachers? Let them know! They can get information and sign up right away.

  1. This is a beautiful graphic! Could you say more about how you created it? (I.e., what software, what mathematical specifications the circles satisfy, maybe even the code so others can create their own variations?)

    I would like a math circle for 6th grade and teaching common core topics please.
