Tulsa Math Teachers’ Circle

4th Annual Summer Immersion Program

June 5-7, 2017

What is a Math Teachers’ Circle?

Math Teachers’ Circles (MTC) bring together middle school math teachers, high school and college mathematics educators, and professional mathematicians to enrich the teachers’ experience of mathematical problem-solving and build mathematical community. Our goals are to:

  • Increase the confidence of middle school math teachers in problem solving
  • Deepen teachers’ content knowledge through exploring mathematically rich problems and developing an arsenal of techniques for 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.

Tulsa Math Teachers’ Circle

The Tulsa Math Teachers’ Circle (TMTC) meets throughout the academic year in selected months. TMTC hosted its first academic year meeting in October, 2013. We have also hosted three summer immersion workshops, one in 2014, in 2015, and one in 2016, all at Post Oak Lodge. TMTC Website: http://tmtc.utulsa.edu/
