ATC - Advanced Teacher Capacity

ATC_logo

Advanced Teacher Capacity offers professional development in mathematics, statistics, and modeling for mathematics teachers in Grades 9-12 to prepare them for four years of high school mathematics for all students.  The project is funded by a grant from the Improving Teacher Quality Program administered by the Ohio Board of Regents.  The ATC project is offering two programs in summer 2014, each with follow-up during the 2014-2015 school year:

Modspar

Modeling and Spatial Reasoning 2014 begins at Ohio University in Athens with a 2-week institute for residential and commuter participants, July 6-11 and 14-18, 2014. The Modspar program focuses on discrete and continuous modeling, geometric modeling, and spatial reasoning.Tarasa Sheffield, Ed Geis, and Bret Cooke explore spherical models at Modspar.

Quantifying Uncertainty and Analyzing Numerical Trends 2014 begins at Ohio University in Athens with a 2-week institute for residential and commuter participants, June 15-20 and 23-27, 2014. QUANT focuses on data analysis, probability, and statistics.Tarasa Sheffield, Karen Rowe, Wei Lin, and Ray Breininger participate in a demonstration at the QUANT summer institute.

 

 

Here's what past ATC scholars have said:
"I enjoyed becoming more comfortable with the technology."
"The institutes were content-rich."
"Absolutely excellent."
"The BEST professional development available to high school (mathematics) teachers. The BEST model with follow-up."
"[Now]...I help my students to be critical thinkers by asking questions that are of high cognitive demand.  I also engage my students in team work and collaborative activities to help them develop their communicating skills.  In addition, I incorporate technology in my teaching so students can have multiple representations of ...concepts."

The total estimated costs for the 2014-2015 ATC project are $294,411, which includes a $168,043 grant of federal funds from the Improving Teacher Quality Program administered by the Ohio Board of Regents, covering approximately 57.1% of the total costs.
