Working towards integration of education and research in the mathematical and computational sciences.
Activities: Teachers will participate in two ongoing workshops:
The program will provide new content and materials, supporting the NCTM Standards, suitable for courses at many levels, including geometry, algebra, discrete mathematics, and computer science. Prior knowledge of Institute topics is not assumed.
Teams of teachers and researchers will be encouraged to collaborate on projects such as developing classroom materials, using the Internet to continue projects after the summer program.
Staff: Activities will be led by experienced college and university faculty (from Princeton as well as other institutions) and high school teachers-in-residence.

About DIMACS: DIMACS, the NSF Science and Technology Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science, is a consortium of Rutgers University, Princeton University, Bellcore, and %AT\&T Bell Laboratories. DIMACS education programs include the Leadership Program in Discrete Mathematics (currently focused on K-8 teachers) and the Young Scholars Program in Discrete Mathematics for HS students.
Application Deadline: March 22, 1996
(Notification by mid-April). Preference will be given to applicants already using the Internet.
Who Should Apply? The program is intended primarily for teachers or supervisors of mathematics or computer science in grades 9-12. Teachers of grades 7-8 with strong backgrounds in mathematics, or teachers of introductory college courses may also apply. Teams of teachers from a single school or district are welcome.
