The FCMTC is a collaboration of mathematicians from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield CT and middle school teachers and coordinators from urban and suburban districts in Fairfield County. The vision of our FCMTC is to re-kindle teachers’ love and motivation towards mathematics, by empowering them with strong content knowledge and open ended problem solving skills. We believe that this approach will significantly impact teaching and learning in the classroom.
