The Center for Mathematics Achievement offers high quality, engaging professional development events and workshops throughout the year.
The Center for Mathematics
Achievement offers a variety of professional development events,
including summer institutes and workshops.
We hold mathematics workshop series several times a year that will help
you boost your math skills and increase both your competence and your
confidence. 2016-17 mathematics workshops.
We collaborate with districts to offer courses at various sites in Massachusetts, open and available to anyone who would like to register (preference given to teachers within the host district). Please see flyers to the side of this page for current offerings.
Can't come to Cambridge? Let us bring
professional development to your school or district! The Center staff will
personalize math professional development specifically for your school or
district. We are also a Massachusetts
DESE-approved vendor for the provision of education improvement services
supporting the Conditions for School Effectiveness aligned with Massachusetts Race to the Top efforts.Current District Collaborations:
