Teacher Education for the Advancement of Mathematics and Science (TEAMS)

Electricity, Magnetism, and Math for elementary and middle teachers 2015

                                                            June 15-19 and 22-26, 2015       

                                  Saturday in September, 2015 (TBA)                                                              

 The Carroll County Schools, Douglas County Schools, University of West Georgia, and American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), are partnering to offer training in physics and mathematics content and teaching techniques on the campus of the University of West Georgia.  This professional development (80 hours) is funded by a grant from the Georgia Department of Education's MSP.

The curriculum for the 2015 project is the study of mathematics, electricity, and magnetism.  This workshop material is designed to meet local and state standards.  A summer session will be held at UWG June 15-26, 2015; a follow-up will be held on a Saturday in September to be determined by the participants.  The workshops are led by nationally trained physics high school teachers, a mathematics professor, and a physics professor. 

A pre-workshop meeting of participants will be held after school at central locations in both Carroll and Douglas Counties in March, 2015.        

A similar workshop covering mathematics and waves will be offered in 2016.

 Applications from teachers at schools outside those districts will be accepted if the teachers from those partner schools do not fill up the workshop.

Participants will receive:

Teachers are asked to form cohorts of at least one science teacher and at least one mathematics teacher in schools having grades 3-5 and  6-8 to participate in this professional development.
