Schedule: Summer Geometry Workshop for Teachers

A typical day in the program:

9:00-9:30 Breakfast with colleagues
9:30-12:30 Teachers' Circle - part of the day devoted exclusively to mathematics. Possible topics include: circles, inversions, hyperbolic and spherical geometries, surfaces and their higher dimensional relatives, fractional dimensions, and trees.
2:00-3:30 Discussion of methods for and practice of teaching geometry will be initiated by animations and videos.
3:30-4:00 Show and tell: Teachers will present their favorite geometry lessons (technology, investigations, etc.)
4:00-4:30 Tea
4:30-6:00 Lesson plan study: we will break into three groups according to grade level and/or topic of interest. The outcomes of these discussions will be shared with all groups on the last day of the workshop.

There are likely to be adjustments to our daily schedule, but we hope this gives you an idea of what our plans are.
