Mathematics Fellowships for Middle Grade Teachers
The Mathematics Fellowships Program is targeted to teachers of grades 5-8 who wish to improve their math content knowledge by enrolling in free courses through the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Beginning in May 2005 and continuing through August 2006, "Math Fellows" will take a sequence of four courses: Problem Solving, Geometry, Probability and Statistics, and Algebraic Structures. These courses have been developed at UWM to be geared specifically to teachers, and will be taught by UWM faculty and experienced middle and high school teachers.
The program will waive resident, off-campus tuition costs and provide books and materials for the participants. All courses are held off-campus at MPS school sites.
Upon successful completion of the program, Math Fellows will receive a MPS certificate of recognition. They may also take additional free courses in algebra and calculus and will then receive a UWM transcript notation indicating completion of the UWM mathematics minor for the Middle Childhood through Early Adolescence Education program.
The program is targeted to MPS middle grades teachers, but has openings available for non-MPS teachers as well.
