The Acadiana Math Teachers' Circle
Welcome to the Acadiana Math Teachers' Circle (AMTC). The Acadiana Math Teachers' Circle is one of the members of the national Math Teachers' Circle Network. The goal of the AMTC is to give teachers an opportunity to revisit what attracted them to mathematics in the first place. Teachers’ confidence level and content knowledge will be increased through rigorous and challenging problem solving sessions with trained mathematicians. By building a community of mathematics problem solvers, we are certain their enthusiasm will be translated to their students and fellow teachers. Overall this teachers’ circle will help to develop a future work force of critical thinkers.
Every month from September to May, the AMTC will offer an evening event for middle school math teachers interested in exploring accessible, exciting topics in mathematics and learning about a problem-solving approach to teaching math. Teachers who are interested in attending should fill out the brief email of interest with subject line "Interest in Joining AMTC". You can also reach Cat Mckay by phone at 337-258-2810 to let her know of your interest.
Meetings will typically occur the second Thursday evening of every month from 5:30pm-8:00pm. The events will be held at the University of Louisiana @ Lafayette in Maxim D. Doucet Hall on the second floor. Dinner is complimentary and begins at 5:30 p.m. Here are the problem sets we are currently discussing.
