Since August 2018, we’ve been busy developing and offering free professional development programs for Idaho teachers of mathematics in Region 3 (Boise and surrounding areas). Features of RMC offerings include:
  • Linked to research on student math achievement
  • Sustainable beyond initial participation
  • Accessible and scalable to educators in the region
  • Supports local development of leadership capacity

Teaching Mathematical Thinking Courses

Explore how to use students’ thinking in the teaching of mathematics. TMT courses satisfy the MTI course requirement in State of Idaho teaching (re)certification.

Mathematical Quality of Instruction

Try a classroom observation tool for analyzing instruction in terms of math practices, student interaction, rich content, student errors, and links between activities and learning goals.

Interactive Math Teaching Modules

Dig deeper into grade-band focused strands of mathematics content. Participation includes cycles of meeting with colleagues, followed by implementation in the classroom and reflection.

Math Leadership Network

Join a helping community for current teacher leaders, administrators, coaches, and curriculum developers to meet and learn from one another. Features options for building capacity to work with colleagues on improving math achievement based on your current role.

Lesson Study

Join a cohort of teachers working in teams through cycles of planning, observing, revising, and reflecting on lessons. Includes teaching and observing lessons with peers.

Book Study

Read and discuss a selected math education book through 6 scheduled meetings with a self-organized group. Includes assistance from RMC staff and accountability partners for implementing ideas in classrooms.

Math Education Learning Communities

Learn more about an important contemporary topic in mathematics education. Includes reading and reflection, along with facilitated discussion with colleagues.
