The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be partnering with several ESUs and school districts to offer courses for mathematics teachers across the state. The courses are part of the statewide Nebraska Math & Science Summer institutes (NMSSI). While there are courses for teachers of all grades levels, those designed for elementary or primary grades teachers are listed here.
Courses designed to complement the PM program and which are accessible to all elementary teachers are:
MATH 896/803P: Algebraic Thinking in the Elementary Classroom
June 17-21: Columbus (Class # 11446)
June 17-28 (8am-noon): Lincoln (Class # 11447), Omaha (Class # 2971)

MATH 896/804P: Problem Solving & Critical Thinking in the Elementary Classroom
July 8-12: Lincoln (Class # 2972), Omaha (Class # 3260)
In addition, teachers who have completed the Primarily Math program will find the content of Math 800T accessible. Otherwise it is intended for an audience of teachers of grades 3-10.
