Upcoming Events

MoDAL Summer Institute & Collaboration (3 credits)

The Idaho Regional Mathematics Center at the University of Idaho, in conjunction with Boise State University, invites you to apply for the MoDAL Summer Institute. Modeling and Data Analysis Literacy (MoDAL) is a four-day professional development workshop in the content area of secondary data analysis and statistics, followed by 3 cycles of blended-format (face-to-face and hybrid) collaboration sessions during the 2017-2018 school year for secondary mathematics teachers in Idaho. Carefully crafted contexts support connections both within and across grades 6-12 mathematics standards.

The MoDAL Summer Institute will be held June 26-29, 2017, with 40 teachers, followed by classroom teaching during the 2017-2018 academic year; follow-up cycle dates to be determined. MoDAL Summer Institute offers teachers chances to work closely with peers to engage with rich tasks, analyze thinking, consider teaching practices and tailor curriculum for their classroom. The purpose is to build knowledge and skills needed to effectively teach secondary statistics ideas while creating high-quality, web-based curriculum for teachers. 

The MoDAL Summer Institute will be facilitated by:

● Dr. Michele Carney, Assistant Professor, CIFS, Boise State University
● Dr. Joe Champion, Assistant Professor, Mathematics, Boise State University
● Dr. Julie Amador, Research Associate Professor, Curriculum and Instruction, University of Idaho
● Dr. Abe Wallin, Regional Mathematics Specialist, University of Idaho

Participation Requirements
In order to participate as a teacher in the professional development, an applicant must:

● be employed by a public school in Idaho for the 2017-2018 school year
● expect to have a classroom teaching or co-teaching assignment in Grades 6-12
● complete a brief application, including a promise of support from a supervisor
● commit to attend and complete the project components
● respond to surveys and other requests for data used to evaluate the program

Those interested should complete an application by registering on this page. Application deadline EXTENDED: June 2, 2017.

Stipend and College Credits

A $750 stipend and 3 professional development credits from the University of Idaho will be provided for participation in the summer institute ($500 + 2 credits) and three follow-up sessions ($250 + 1 credit). An additional $400 stipend is available for up to 20 teachers who live more than 60 miles from the University of Idaho, Coeur d'Alene.   

Application and Selection Process
Preference will be given to (1) applicants who apply as a vertical collaboration team (about 3-6 teachers, including both middle and high school), and (2) applicants from districts with fewer teams and/or grade bands with fewer applicants. If you are applying as a vertical team, you will need to identify a team name and primary team contact. 

Individuals are also encouraged to apply.

Teaching Mathematical Thinking (3 credits)

The Teaching Mathematical Thinking (TMT) is a course that fulfills the 3-credit MTI course requirement for Idaho teachers. This course provides an opportunity to study fundamental mathematical theory underlying the content area of numbers and operations and student reasoning of numbers and operations topics within a framework of a student-centered, problem-based classroom. Topics will include number systems, ways of representing numbers, meanings of operations and how they relate to one another, and computation within the number system as a foundation for algebra. Pedagogical topics will focus on attending to student thinking and reasoning through the use of discourse and questioning, professional noticing, and the effective use of manipulatives or other mathematical tools.

There is a mandatory $180 fee associated with the TMT course. It provides course materials and three Continuing Education credits. You will pay the fee on the last day of class.

There are no meals provided. Please bring a lunch so that we can take a quick break and finish earlier than our scheduled release time.
