July 29 - 31, 2013

With just about a week remaining to take advantage of our Early Bird Special (details at the end of this notice), you are invited to join us for a 3 day engaging institute focusing on the eight Mathematical Practices and what they look like in the classroom.  We are excited to have some of the region’s most influential mathematics educators together to actively engage us in classroom activities that embody the mathematical practices from CCSSM.

Our complete Program will soon be available at www.atmne.net, but listed below is a sampling of our offerings.
