Workshop on Extra-Curricular Mathematics
The Center for Mathematical Talent (CMT) at the Courant Institute of NYU is offering a free, six-week workshop for Math Teachers that focuses on how to build and run a Math Team, and how to bring Math Team ideas into your regular math classrooms.
The program will meet Wednesdays (March 2nd to April 6th) from 4:30 – 6:30 at Brooklyn Technical High School. The workshop will be led by Patrick Honner–a Math Team coach from Brooklyn Tech and a 2010 Sloan Award winner—and will also feature CMT’s director Dr. Mark Saul, and other special guests.
In addition to exploring and experiencing a wide variety of mathematical competitions, particpants will learn how to use the contests as starting points for further mathematical investigation and engagement with their students. Select topics in math enrichment will also be covered, providing material suitable for use in both math team and regular classroom settings.
