Math Circle for Middle School Teachers

Program overview

The Gold Coast Math Teachers’ Circle (GCMTC) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) endeavors to support teachers learning, enhancing and sharing content knowledge and instructional practices that bring rich mathematical exploration into our schools.

We facilitated a week-long summer workshop which gave teachers experience with and resources from some of the wealth of activities currently being led in many Math Teachers’ Circles nationally.

We are continually looking to understand teachers’ needs, facilitate their interaction with mathematicians, and support their development as mathematics educators and will continue this program with monthly meetings.

Math Teachers’ Circle Monthly Meetings

The GCMTC at FAU will support teachers in their development of problem solving skills as well as the incorporation of problem solving into their teaching curriculum. During these monthly meetings, teachers will gain experience with a variety of problem solving techniques; subsequent sessions will focus on particular topics, such as geometry, sequences, counting, and number theory.
