Collaboration and Dynamic Math in Middle and High Schools

Description:  Two online courses are being offered by Rutgers-Newark Department of Urban Education. 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. During the 2013-2014 school year, the eMath Project will offer the following two-course sequence of graduate online courses for middle and high school mathematics teachers:

1. Collaboration and Dynamic Mathematics in Middle and High Schools (26:300:533)

2. Studying Learning and Teaching in Online, Dynamic Mathematical Environments (26:300:534)

Each is a three-credit course, meeting online, and offered respectively from September 3 through December 23, 2013 and from January 21 through May 14, 2014.

Participants in the courses must be teaching mathematics during the 2013-2014 school year. One-half tuition for the first course will be stipend/reimbursed upon successful completion of the first course, and full tuition for the second course will be stipend/reimbursed upon successful completion of the second course.

Date: Fall 2013: September 3-December 23, 2013. Spring 2014: January 21-May 14, 2014.
