Helping ALL Students Succeed in Mathematics (6-12)


Institute for Experienced Teachers

Complementing our successful
Institutes for New Mathematics Teachers

"The Institute has motivated and inspired me and more importantly, has been a catalyst for new ideas and approaches".

- Solomon Fleckman,
H.S. Math Teacher
1997 participant

Rutgers University Center for Mathematics, Science, and Computer Education

Attend this institute and you will:

Be better prepared to introduce new material in the upcoming year:

  • You will review New Jersey's Mathematics Standards and the New Jersey Mathematics Curriculum Framework
  • You will review your school's curriculum materials and discuss how they can best be used and supplemented

Be better able to excite and motivate your students to do mathematics:

  • You will focus on hands-on activities, problem solving, and real-world applications
  • You will discuss how to respond to different student learning styles in mathematics

Be more aware of ways for ALL students to be successful:

  • You will leave the program with materials for immediate use in your classroom
  • You will work in small groups and develop various styles of effective group work

Be part of a network of colleagues with a shared experience:

  • You will work with teachers who are also seeking to "recharge their batteries"
  • You will develop a new enthusiasm for teaching mathematics

What Is The Experienced Teachers Institute?

The Institute for Experienced Mathematics Teachers is a week-long, standards-based program designed to better prepare teachers for the challenges of teaching mathematics today. The institute staff, who are experienced supervisors and teachers of mathematics, will work closely with participants to respond to their particular instructional needs. For the last sixteen years, we have sponsored the Institute for New Mathematics Teachers; this Institute was developed in response to the frequent request for a similiar program for experienced teachers.

Who Should Attend?

For those who are teaching mathematics at the middle or high school level, and are interested in new ways of presenting thought-provoking material. Participants should have 3 or more years of prior teaching experience.

Where Is It Held?

Busch Campus, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey.

When Is The Institute?

Not offered for summer 2005.

What Is The Cost?

$1,000 per participant, including continental breakfast, lunch and materials. Teachers should ask their districts to subsidize their participation. Housing, if needed, will be arranged at a modest cost to participants.

Is Credit Offered?

Three graduate credits are available to participants who attend the program, pay additional tuition and fees, and complete additional course requirements. Credit will be awarded for the summer session.
