The Summer workshop supports teachers in their development of problem solving skills as well as the incorporation of problem solving into
their school’s curriculum. During the earlier part of the week teachers will gain experience with a variety of problem solving techniques
such as symmetry, mathematical patterns, and parity. Subsequent sessions will focus on particular topics such as geometry, sequences,
counting, and number theory. Traditionally relegated to the high school curriculum or beyond, these topics actually provide a natural
starting point for exploring and appreciating interesting mathematics at the middle school level. All the sessions will be led by exceptional
educators and mathematicians from the San Francisco Bay area. The participants will be provided with housing, supplies, and meals for each day
of the workshop they attend. Applications will be evaluated on a first-come first-served basis beginning late February, 2013 and spaces will fill
up fast, so please apply early!
