2004 CPTM Summer Institute

 

DEVELOPING TEACHERS' MATHEMATICAL KNOWLEDGE FOR TEACHING

 

Held June 5-12, 2004, The 2004 CPTM Summer Institute was designed for mathematicians and mathematics educators who work with K-8 teachers. During the Institute, participants worked on developing practical resources and skills for working with K-8 teachers on mathematics for teaching. A daily “laboratory” class of preservice teachers offered opportunities for participants’ observation, study, and analysis.

 

FOCUS

The focus of the 2004 Institute is the mathematical preparation of K-8 teachers, centered around two key problems:

1.  What mathematical knowledge and practices play a central role in the everyday work of teaching?

2.  What are promising approaches for helping teachers learn mathematics for teaching and learn to use it in their work?
