The Center for Mathematics and Science Education (CMSE) at The University of Mississippi will host a special professional development algebra workshop in Meridian Sept. 29-30. This workshop is sponsored in part by GEAR UP Mississippi. Registration is limited; deadline is Sept. 12.
Algebra serves as a bridge between students’ early computation learning and real-world applications. In this two-day session, participants will explore algebra content including equations, functions, and statistical applications through hands-on activities that can be taken back to their classrooms. Teachers will also investigate ways to engage students in the Standards for Mathematical Practice and reflect on effective mathematics teaching practices that elicit student thinking.
