Dear Teachers,

Please consider attending our February MTC.  I expect it to be special. Paul is an interesting speaker. I know I will enjoy his talk and I think you will too. Please RSVP (judithm@ucsc.edu) before Feb 5, as I need a count to order food.

Looking forward to seeing regulars and hopefully some new faces.



What: Math Teachers’ Circle (MTC)

The sessions will sometimes be led by a math professor, sometimes by a grade student and sometimes we work through problems one of our group has proposed.  All teachers are welcome to attend.  These sessions are most applicable for math specialists and middle/high school math teachers. Teachers are encouraged to suggest session topics.  Teachers can earn PD units for attendance. 

When: The Circle has met since 2010.  This year we will meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except January). 

Where: TBA Participants will host sessions at their school site or other location.
