PMET: Preparing Mathematicians to Educate Teachers

Summer 2004 Workshops

PMET is a major initiative of MAA funded by the National Science Foundation with supplemental funding from Texas Instruments.  Its goal is to enhance the background of mathematicians who teach mathematics courses taken by students preparing to teach at the elementary, middle and/or secondary grade levels.  A major component of PMET is a series of workshops running from 7-12 days and for one or two summers.  Applications are now available for the eight new workshops for summer 2004, which will take place in California, North Carolina, Nebraska, New York and Ohio.  For specific dates and sites, go to the PMET page at:

This can also be reached by going to the MAA home page and following links to PMET workshops.

Each workshop is planned to have about 25 participants.  Room, board and tuition is covered by the grants so participants need only pay their travel.  In the past, many institutions have provided these travel funds.

The deadline for applications is April 9, 2004.  Application forms are available on the WEB at:
