GBMP's 2006 Summer Courses Draw Crowds and Excellent Reviews


Summary of the results and highlights of the Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership's 2006 summer mathematics courses for local teachers.

"The Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership (GBMP) exceeded expectations for its
mathematics courses in the summer of 2006. Instructors from the Mathematics
Education Collaborative (MEC) led multiple offerings of the courses entitled Patterns,
Functions and Algebraic Reasoning, Probability and Data Analysis, and Numerical
Reasoning. These nine-day courses focused on mathematics content taught in a way
that modeled best practices for developing mathematically powerful students. The GBMP
team invited teachers from partnership schools, parents of school children, IHE
(institution of higher education) faculty and pre-service teachers to participate."
