The mission of the Central Ohio Math Circle for Teachers is threefold:
1) The Circle will serve as a collaborative and supportive environment where teachers can work with mathematicians to develop the habit of doing mathematics. Such experiences will enrich and deepen teachers’ view of mathematics as well as their content knowledge.
2) Part of each meeting of the Circle will address how a similar learning experience could be implemented in the teacher’s classroom. This will enable the teachers to bring these experiences to their students. It is our hope that the habit of “doing mathematics” will become infectious and will permeate all levels of learning and teaching mathematics.
3) By collaboratively working on and developing rich mathematical tasks, we hope for teachers from different schools to forge new relationships with other teachers and mathematicians alike. This discourse, between teachers and mathematicians, is critical for fostering a habit of doing mathematics.Currently, there are complementary programs in place in Central Ohio that will align well with the goals of our Math Circle, though, many of these activities are student-centered rather than focused on teachers.
