Fellowships worth $300 are available while funds remain to help cover tuition for courses for teachers through the Nebraska Math and Science Summer Institutes (NMSSI) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this summer. We have already awarded more than 110 fellowships to Nebraska teachers and have around 90 more to give away. Join your colleagues today in applying for an NMSSI Fellowship: https://cse.unl.edu/scimath/apps/apply.php. All current Nebraska mathematics teachers also automatically qualify for a 20 percent reduction in the cost of tuition.

Here are a few of the courses we are offering this summer:

MATH 800T: Math as a Second Language (The approach is to understand arithmetic and algebra as a means of communicating mathematical ideas, and will stress a deep understanding of the basic operations of arithmetic, as well as the interconnected nature of arithmetic, algebra and geometry relating to the grades 3-7 curriculum.)
Kearney, June 3-7
Lincoln, June 10-14
Scottsbluff, June 3-7

MATH 802T: Functions, Algebra and Geometry (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.)
Ainsworth, June 10-14
Hastings, June 3-7
Norfolk, June 10-14

TEAC 892 section 592 - Teaching High School Statistics (The course will focus on current research and practices of teaching, learning and assessing statistics from multiple perspectives. Participating teachers will be challenged to understand statistics at a deeper level and become more effective through improved lesson design, reflection, and collaboration.)
Lincoln, June 10-14

MATH 803P*: Algebraic Thinking for the Elementary Classroom (Discussion will revolve around student understanding of Algebraic properties of mathematics as participants examine case studies, video segments and student work samples. Participants will explore instructional strategies for fostering Algebraic thinking that are appropriate for both the primary (K-2) and intermediate (3-5) elementary classrooms.)
* was formerly listed as MATH 896 in MyRed
