The Chicago Math Teachers’ Circle is intended to be an opportunity for math teachers to gather and solve problems together. Teachers of all grade levels are welcome. We are part of the national Math Teachers’ Circle Network and share their goals and philosophy.
We aim to help teachers with the extremely difficult task of developing their students’ problem solving skills. But we do not focus directly on what will be done in the classroom. Instead, we simply give teachers the chance to solve interesting problems together. After all, how can you teach a skill that you don’t practice? And besides, solving problems is great fun!
