Math Teachers’ Circles bring together teachers and mathematicians to enrich the teachers’ experience of mathematical problem solving. There are four goals:
- Increase the confidence of math teachers in problem solving.
- Deepen teachers’ content knowledge through exploring mathematically rich problems and develop an arsenal of techniques to solving unfamiliar and challenging problems.
- Form long-term professional relationships among teachers and mathematicians, through regular, highly interactive meetings.
- Provide support for teachers who want to bring richer mathematical experiences to their students.
