The Department of Mathematics at California State University, Fresno in collaboration with San Joaquin Valley Mathematics Project (SJVMP) and the Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI) offer a unique opportunity for elementary school teachers. Learn how to integrate standards for mathematical practices and Common Core mathematical standards through embedded lessons with actual students using CGI strategies.

  • Nine days of intensive hands-on learning through activities and demonstration classes for elementary mathematics teachers to help implement the California State Standards for Mathematics.
  • Learn the new Mathematics content of the CCSSM through observation and discussion.
  • Collaboratively prepare and field test lessons that incorporate the eight Standards for Mathematical Practices of CCSSM.
  • Observe demonstration classes with highly effective teaching strategies.
  • Intensive learning experience through challenging mathematical and pedagogical tasks in an enjoyable environment.
  • Change the way you think about teaching mathematics.
  • Learn to use dynamic mathematics software to explore concepts.
  • Take back implementation techniques of CCSSM to your own school.
  • Earn a $250 stipend and optional 3 units of Fresno State professional development credit (cost $75/unit).
  • School/District Support: Registration fee $850 (before May 15th), $950 (after May 15th).
