Welcome to the website of Advanced Mathematics in the Grade 8 to High School Classroom provided by Lower Pioneer Valley Educational Collaborative and partnered with MATHWEST and Westfield State College.
The Advanced Mathematics institute will prepare grades 8 through 12 educators to work with a target population of advanced learners in the field of mathematics. Each class will center around 3 to 4 lessons or activities dealing with challenging concepts related to the specific theme of the day, from patterns to probability. Participants will then develop portfolios of instructional materials and resources to use in their classrooms. Instruction will include the integration of technology, specifically the TI-84 graphing calculator and Geometer’s Sketchpad. Teachers who successfully complete this institute will have a greater depth of knowledge of the concepts and skills in the Mathematics Curriculum Framework and the skills assessed on the Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL) for high school mathematics. For more specific information about the Advanced Mathematics institute please see the About section and the Course section.
