Grades K-6, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

This video gives a short overview of the goals, activities and results of the Poincare Institute. We built a program for middle school in service Mathematics teachers that develops mathematical thinking and pedagogical skills for teachers in grades 5-9. The common thread of our three on-line courses is the relationship of the topics in the middle school curriculum with the use of functions and their representation. We also present the results of a few studies that show the progress of participating teachers and their students in standarised tests.
