Developing Mathematical Ideas (DMI) Institutes

Great math teachers possess a combination of deep conceptual understanding of the mathematics they teach, a strong awareness of how students learn, and knowledge of a wide array of effective teaching practices to support students.  Our DMI institutes are designed to strengthen teachers in all three of these areas.

Participants will engage in rich mathematical experiences, analyze student thinking, and explore powerful instructional moves in these highly interactive and transformative institutes.  Teachers will leave with more expertise to facilitate student-centered mathematical experiences in their classrooms.
