on Teaching Mathematics
● Teaching innovations ● Current issues ●
Professional opportunities ● Networking ●
These monthly seminars will be held during the academic year on topics likely to be of interest to future mathematics teachers (at any level – elementary, middle, or high school). The purpose of these seminars is to provide a forum for discussion of issues relevant to future mathematics teachers.
Have an idea for a topic? We are always looking for presenters and for additional topics of interest to future mathematics teachers. If you have an idea for a presenter, if you would like to present a topic yourself, or there's something you would like to know more about, please drop us a line!
Seminar contacts: Dr. Jennifer Kosiak [kosiak.jenn] or Dr. Jon Hasenbank [hasenban.jon]
