NCCAT host Smoky Mountain Math Teachers' Circle Summer Immersion in Cullowhee

The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching hosted the Smoky Mountain Math Teachers' Circle Summer Immersion this July.

The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching hosted the Smoky Mountain Math Teachers' Circle Summer Immersion Camp July 8-10 in Cullowhee.

The North Carolina Network of Math Teachers' Circles (NCNMTC), is a statewide network of mathematics teachers and faculty. As part of this network, Math Teachers’ Circles around the state will provide an ongoing way for teachers and professors to stay connected around mathematics.

Western Carolina Univeristy professors Nathan Borchelt and Sloan Despeaux lead the program which feature several opportunities to share and learn with other math educators.
 
Math Teachers’ Circles (MTCs; www.mathteacherscircle.org) are professional communities of K-12 teachers and higher education faculty who meet regularly to work on rich mathematics problems and informally discuss problems of practice. MTCs are a key part of our vision in North Carolina for building a K-20 community of mathematics professionals committed to fostering a love for and understanding of mathematics among all students.
