Professional Development Overview


The Center for Mathematics and Teaching was founded by a small group of mathematics educators who worked together in the Mathematics Department at UCLA. We employ teacher-leaders with experience as mathematics teachers and PD providers in elementary through high school, though our expertise lies mainly in middle school. All of our teacher-leaders have also worked as one or more of the following: university lecturer; university mathematics project teacher-leader; district or site mathematics coach; mathematics textbook author; consultant. We will work with you to support your needs, no matter how big or small.



A Great FREE Fractions PD Opportunity in your area


Taube Philanthropies has provided a grant to the Center for Mathematics and Teaching to enable us to offer a three-day virtual professional development program to math teachers or administrators in the San Francisco Bay Area. Teachers will deepen their own understanding of fraction concepts and operations, learn strategies to help their students, and receive up to 30 digital class sets (virtual teaching friendly) of the entire Fractions Module from our MathLinks: Essentials program.


The value for these professional development workshops and resources is $1000, but the grant from Taube Philanthropies will sponsor your attendance and materials. Expectations are (1) teacher do a short evaluation after each PD session and (2) teachers give their students short pre- and post -tests when using MathLinks materials (preferably before winter break).


DATES:         October 20, 22 and 27.


TIME:              3:30-5:00


Space for this amazing opportunity is limited, so please send in your registration as soon as possible.


Please contact a CMAT teacher-leader to schedule PD.
