Mathematical Outreach for K-12 Teachers

Math for Teachers is an outreach program of the Department of Mathematics at Rutgers University that provides exte nded coursework to consider the mathematics you teach. As the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) are implemented, you will be asked to bring students to proficiency in "mathematical practices" such as:

  • Making math make sense
  • Explaining and justifying mathematical work
  • Strategically employing mathematical reasoning
  • Organizing computational procedures

Centered at the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University, Math for Teachers draws on the strengths of a faculty dedicated to the art of teaching and who have made major scholarly contributions to the field.

Good Ideas in Teaching Precalculus and...Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Discrete Mathematics, Probability & Statistics, with Technology

The Precalculus Conference is an annual one-day conference for high school and college mathematics teachers, typically attended by about 200 teachers, that provides up to ten options at each of four sessions, as well as a plenary session on a topic of interest to grades 9-14 teachers. The 2017 conference on March 17 was the 31st annual conference and the next conference will take place on March 16, 2018. The first 31 conferences were directed by Professor Joseph Rosenstein. Subsequent conferences will be sponsored by the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New Jersey (AMTNJ) with the support of the Department of Mathematics and the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS).

Mathematics Workshops for K-12 Teachers

This program provides during the school year over thirty one-day workshops for K-12 teachers of mathematics on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University. The workshops address a variety of topics at various grade levels, and are presented by the most highly regarded New Jersey mathematics teachers and supervisors. Sponsorship of these workshops has been transferred to the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New Jersey (AMTNJ) with the support of the Department of Mathematics and the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS).
