Grades 6-8: Seven Course Locations

MATH 802T: Functions, Algebra and Geometry
June 11-15 in Auburn (Class # 3381), Holdrege (Class # 8848) and North Platte (Class # 3010), 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
June 25-29 in Lincoln (Class # 3380), 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This course is designed to help teachers gain a deep understanding of the concept of function and the algebra and geometry concepts taught in the middle-level (through early high school) curriculum. Studying this content at a deeper level will help teachers better prepare their students for the NeSA-M. Participants also will study measurement with an emphasis on length, area and volume.

MATH 804T: Experimentation, Conjecture and Reasoning
June 11-15 in Columbus, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Class # 7694)
June 18-22 in Lincoln, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Class $ 7693)

This course focuses on problem solving, reasoning and proof and communicating mathematics. The overall goal for this course is to bring participants to the next level in the development of their mathematical habits of mind: A person who is an effective mathematical thinker has a toolbox of skills and knowledge to experiment, conjecture, reason, and ultimately solve problems.

MATH 808T: Concepts of Calculus
June 18-22 in Omaha, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Class # 3014)

Develops a fundamental understanding of the key mathematical ideas of calculus in order to broaden teachers' mathematical perspective and gain insight into concepts contained in the middle-level curriculum which are related and foundational to the development of calculus. Topics include limits, differentiation, integration, applications and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
