Math teachers get refresher course
When school resumes this fall, hundreds of north Mississippi students will get a fresh look at mathematics as an exciting, everyday tool, thanks to a recent two-week training institute conducted by the University of Mississippi’s Center for Mathematics and Science Education.
Using a $1.5 million grant from the Mississippi Department of Education, CMSE developed the summer program, dubbed Project PrIME, or Promoting Innovation in Mathematics Education, to help teachers improve their content knowledge in mathematics. Sixty middle school teachers from across north Mississippi participated in the inaugural summer institute earlier this month at Della Davidson Elementary School in Oxford.
