The East Texas Math Teachers' Circle (ETMTC) is an opportunity for mathematics teachers to rediscover their love for mathematics by exploring problem solving with Stephen F. Austin State University mathematics faculty. Emphasis is placed on the development of problem-solving strategies that can be taken back to the mathematics classroom. The ETMTC is open to all interested mathematics teachers: high school, middle school, elementary school, public school, private school, home school, and student teachers.
During the fall and spring semesters, the ETMTC meets once Tuesday per month, 5:30-8:00pm, beginning with dinner and then a problem-solving session. Most meetings are held on the SFA campus at the STEM Research & Learning Center, room 123 of the math building, but please check our website for updates. It is free to attend and no RSVP is required. We offer Continuing Professional Education and Gifted/Talented credits for Texas teachers.
We are supported by grants from AIM, MSRI, and have partnered with the Region 7 Educational Service Center, the multi-year colleage readiness federal grant program GEAR UP, and SFA's T4 NSF grant program to provide professional development for their teachers.
