The Leadership Program in Discrete Mathematics features contemporary topics in mathematics that can be used in K-12 classrooms. Program participants will learn about discrete mathematics and review and prepare materials that they can use to introduce these topics in their classes.
In the summer of
2009, one new institute for K-8 teachers will be conducted in
The program is structured to encourage active participation. Those who attend will be involved directly in the learning process through use of workshop groups, participant presentations and discussions, and problem-solving sessions. Previous program participants will report on their classroom experiences and share instructional materials they have prepared and used successfully. The program will prepare teachers to introduce discrete mathematics into the classroom and the curriculum. Participants will be expected to develop instructional materials for their own use and for use by other teachers, and to present workshops on institute topics in their schools and districts.
Who Sponsors The Institutes?
The Leadership Program in Discrete Mathematics is sponsored by the
Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) and
