Northern Colorado Math Circles – Problem Solving Sessions

A Math Teachers’ Circle (MTC) provides an opportunity for teachers to engage in mathematical problem solving and deepen their understanding of mathematics. The main activities of a MTC are problem-solving sessions for math teachers in a collaborative environment. Rather than emphasizing math exercises, the solutions and approaches discussed during the MTC sessions aim to create a culture of problem solving among mathematics teachers. At each of our sessions, the participating teachers will actively engage in solving math problems. The participants will work on math problems geared towards the level of teachers, rather than the level of their students. As well as discussing various solutions and strategies, we will also address teachers’ concerns about how to implement problem solving in the classroom, how to modify problems from our sessions to fit their students’ level and connections to the Common Core Standards. Another important aspect of the MTC is to create a network among math teachers and research.
