MATH 5080: Special Study for Teachers

You are here

Since 1985, during each academic year the Cornell Mathematics Department has offered a series of four full-day workshops for secondary mathematics teachers.  Other people who are interested in issues related to the teaching and learning of secondary mathematics (e.g., mathematics pre-service teachers, mathematics undergraduate and graduate students, and mathematicians) are also welcome to attend.  During workshop sessions participants examine principles underlying the content of the secondary school mathematics curriculum, including connections with the history of mathematics, technology, and mathematics education research. 

Contact the instructor, Mary Ann Huntley, for more information.

Workshop Schedule and Topics

Participation at one workshop is not prerequisite to attending another.
