UTD TRC Mathematics Workshops

For the 2017-2018  school year, the content goals are algebraic and proportional reasoning for grades 6-8, but all mathematics teachers (4-12) are welcome to apply! Algebra and proportional reasoning professional development should include the understanding of problem structures and student strategies to guide instruction and focus on the grade 6-8 TEKS. Challenging math problems and problem solving in all grade levels involving decision making, reflection on problem solutions, especially deciding which information to use, how and when to use certain tools and representations, and how to communicate those decisions and results should provide the pedagogical context for the content. Professional development programming should target these needs through the use of research-based professional development approaches and associated materials.
