Many courses and experiences have been developed for preservice and practicing secondary teachers. While all different, most have the common feature that they are based on an underlying framework about what is important in a mathematics course for teachers-they move beyond "lists of topics that teachers need to know."
One could look at a syllabus for such courses and say, "This is about . . .'' and make a list of topics. But the developers of these courses have more fundamental organizing principles. These principles are the focus of the workshop.
Attendees will participate in sessions that give a taste of the activities in different courses or programs and then discuss what's beneath the surface features-why these topics and the ways in which they are developed serve their underlying philosophies.
We are especially interested in learning about courses that are either co-designed or co-taught by mathematician-educator-teacher teams. And we'd like each presentation team to include at least one participant from the course or program. If you are interested in presenting, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
