The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is offering a one-day overview of Connected Mathematics (CMP) on Friday, August 5, 2011. This professional development session will provide support for new teachers implementing CMP in their sixth, seventh or eighth grade classrooms.
The CMP professional development is designed to provide newly implementing teachers with the opportunity to:
- Develop an understanding of the philosophy and goals of the CMP curriculum

- Collaborate with colleagues in similar grade levels
- Deepen their content and pedagogical content knowledge
During the sessions, teachers will learn about the curricular materials and resources, engage in problem-based investigations, prepare for implementation in their classrooms, and explore high-quality instruction. They will engage in activities to promote reflection and professional growth. Sessions will focus on the following grade level units:
6th grade - Prime Time
7th grade - Variables and Patterns
8th grade - Thinking with Mathematical Models
