Boston Math Teachers’ Circle

Host Institution: Harvard University
City: Boston
State: MA – Massachusetts
In our monthly Boston Math Teachers’ Circle meetings you’ll get a chance to work together on intriguing math problems alongside mathematicians from local universities including Harvard, MIT, BU and BC. Problems for our sessions are typically chosen by the whole group – we start off by thinking about a particular situation, and then explore mathematical connections and see where it leads us! Participating in the BMTC puts the Common Core’s Mathematical Practices into action, such as “Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them,” “Reason abstractly,” and “Construct viable arguments.” Experiencing these first-hand gives you the chance to discuss with other teachers and mathematicians how to develop these practices in your own students.
