Summer 2016 Application Form - Southwest Colorado and Rocky Mountain Math Teachers' Circles - August 8-11, 2016
A Math Teachers' Circle provides an opportunity for teachers to engage in mathematical problem solving and deepen their understanding of mathematics. The main activities are problem-solving sessions in a collaborative environment. In particular, participants will work on math problems geared towards the level of teachers, rather than the level of their students, and discuss various approaches, solutions, and problem-solving strategies. Problems from outside the scope of typical curriculum and are selected to provide participants with opportunities to develop breadth and flexibility in mathematical thinking.

Time on the last day will be dedicated to connecting this back to your classrooms. The Math Teachers' Circle also aims to create a network among math teachers and mathematicians that can serve as an invaluable resource of ideas, activities, and support with fellow professionals.

The workshop will be designed for teachers at the 4th to 9th grade levels. Teachers from outside this range are also encouraged to attend. Problems will have multiple entry points allowing participants with differing levels of mathematical backgrounds to be engaged and enjoy progress. Teachers will benefit most if they participate with the goal of developing and deepening their problem solving skills and are open to working collaboratively to broaden their approaches to mathematics.

Preference will be given to applications received by April 8. Applications will continue to be accepted based on availability until June 15.
