Most MathCEP Seminars and workshops are offered at no cost to teachers, and we provide documentation of your activities and clock hours for those who need a record of their professional development.

MathCEP Summer 2018 Teacher Workshop: June 19-21, 2018

Open Educational Resources in Advanced Algebra/Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry Active Learning Classrooms

To Register: fill out this online form.

This workshop is designed to give high teachers and college faculty a forum to share experiences and materials used in active learning environments. This may include, but is not limited to, flipped classrooms. 

The primary goal is to share and develope resources that can be used in our own classrooms. The University of Minnesota, for example, is producing a series of video textbooks which could be used by high schools for Algebra and PreCalculus courses.  Online question banks such as MyMathLab, MathXL, Khan Academy, and WeBWorK provide a useful tool for student self-evaluation. Other in-class materials and activities are vital to student learning. Forming a network to share ideas and resources will improve education for all of us!
