Rutgers-Newark Department of Urban Education invites New Jersey middle and high school mathematics teachers to participate in a professional learning opportunity: two online graduate courses offered during fall 2014 and spring 2015. Although participants must pay tuition, three graduate credits and a $1,000 stipend will be awarded upon successful completion of the first course and $2,000 for successfully completing the second course.
The first course, “Collaboration and Dynamic Mathematics in Middle and High Schools,” will run Sept. 2-Dec. 22. The second course, “Studying Learning and Teaching in Online, Dynamic Mathematical Environments,” will be held Jan. 20-May 13, 2015.
The courses are part of a National Science Foundation-funded research project that aims to investigate the influence of computer-supported mathematics discourse on students’ mathematical performance. Participants in the courses must be teaching middle or high school mathematics during the 2014-15 school year.
Dates: Collaboration and Dynamic Mathematics in Middle and High Schools: Sept. 2-Dec. 22, 2014; Studying Learning and Teaching in Online, Dynamic Mathematical Environments: Jan. 22-May 12, 2015.
