2018 Math Teachers’ Circle Training Workshop

June 18-22, 2018

MAA Carriage House, 1781 Church St. NW Washington, D.C. 20036

The American Institute of Mathematics and the Mathematical Association of America are pleased to announce the 2018 Math Teachers’ Circle Training Workshop!

This workshop is specifically designed for leadership teams of K-12 and higher-education mathematics professionals who are starting MTCs for teachers who work primarily with students from groups traditionally underrepresented in mathematics. In addition to initiating Math Teachers’ Circles, participants will learn about models that coordinate Circles for teachers with Circles for students to provide additional opportunities for both in-school and out-of-school learning in mathematics.

During the workshop, teams will engage in Math Teachers’ Circle sessions and also spend time planning their own Circle, including recruitment, logistics, and fundraising for long-term sustainability. In addition, participants will hear from leaders of active Circles to gain insight into the ways in which leaders successfully carry out their work.

Accepted teams will receive full funding for their participation in the workshop, as well as small seed grants to help begin their Circle.

Application Process
