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.  Anyone interested in issues related to the teaching and learning of secondary mathematics is welcome to attend (e.g., teachers, prospective teachers, mathematics graduate and undergraduate students, and mathematicians).  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.  Participation at one workshop is not prerequisite to attending another.

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