Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics for elementary, middle and high school teachers

Please note, this program is not available summer 2022


The Department of Mathematics at California State University, Fresno in collaboration with San Joaquin Valley Mathematics Project (SJVMP) and Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI) offers a unique opportunity for elementary, middle and high school teachers to learn how to integrate standards for mathematical practices and common core mathematical standards through embedded lessons with actual students.

  • Learn the new Mathematics content of the CCSSM through observations and discussions.
  • Collaboratively prepare and field test lessons that incorporate the eight Standards for Mathematical Practices of CCSSM.
  • Observe demonstration classes with highly effective teaching strategies.
  • Intensive learning experience through challenging mathematical and pedagogical tasks in an enjoyable environment.
  • Change the way you think about teaching mathematics.
  • Learn to use dynamic mathematics software to explore concepts.
  • Take back implementation techniques of CCSSM to your own school.
