    CCLM is excited to announce two great opportunities for secondary school teachers and especially math leaders! Each session will address two topics of very high interest. We will use a roundtable format, but we also will have special guests attending each session. Both sessions will be moderated by Past President John Keogh. 


    Both sessions are virtual. 

    Session B: Thursday May 4 2:30-3:45 

    Session C: Wednesday May 10 2:30-3:45 



    Session B: the two topics (both based on Pillar #2 from the Math Equity Position paper) are (1) How do we enhance the relevance of math for our students? and (2) How are you diversifying pathways or what new courses are you offering to meet the needs of your students? 

    Session C: the two topics are (1) What should algebra 2 look like and how important is this course for your students? and (2) What is your school or district doing to meet the Essential Condition that we implement high-quality curriculum?  


    These two sessions are FREE for all current individual or district members. 


    If you are NOT a current member, we have great news for you! By registering for either session and paying the $25 membership fee (which will be invoiced to you by our treasurer), your membership will be extended until June of 2024!! 


    You can register by filling out the very short form at  


    We anticipate two great sessions of high relevance to your work!!!

    Financial Literacy Month and Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month April marks an important month in education. This month we celebrate both Financial Literacy Month and Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month. This is an opportunity for schools to encourage students and their families to engage in learning that sets the foundation for a bright future. It is critical for students to be financially literate and to understand mathematics and statistics as important drivers in our current world. The Connecticut State Department of Education encourages districts, schools and informal education partners to promote this month by checking out the attached CSDE - PD Playlist Financial Literacy Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month. Together we can increase financial knowledge and appreciate the diverse applications of mathematics and statistics.

    MTC 4 Social Justice has an upcoming workshop Tuesday evening with an algebra/statistics lesson and important conversation on incarceration rates by demographics. See below for the registration link and more information.


     3/21 Registration


    Workshop Title: Incarceration in Connecticut

    Date/Time: Tuesday, March 21st, 6:30-8:00pm (EST) via Zoom

    Presenters: Taryn DiSorbo, Cheshire Public Schools; Nickie Pendolphi, Groton Public Schools; Bella Llano, University of Connecticut

    Description: The United States continues to have the highest rate of incarceration in the world. Connecticut has taken steps to lower this rate, but how has the criminal justice system impacted different demographic groups? In this session, we will share our lesson that analyzes incarceration rates by race (or gender or age) in Connecticut in the past decade. We will use regression and Desmos to compare different rates over time and then shift our focus to critical conversations. What can be done to improve our system through restorative justice (for example)?

    Simulated Instruction in Mathematics Professional Development (SIMPD) has demonstrated positive impacts on the quality of math instruction and AIR has received a grant to run a randomized control trial study where local coaches are trained and teachers participate in the professional development.  All costs and needed equipment are covered by the grant including compensation for teachers and coaches as well as training costs.  There will be an intervention cohort that will participate in training and data collect 2023-2024.  The “business as usual” cohort will just do data collection in 2023-2024 and receive the trainings in 2024-2025.


    Attached is the official flyer.

    There is an exciting professional development opportunity for grade 7 math teachers who have English learners/multilingual learners in their classes. This opportunity is being offered through a partnership between the Connecticut State Department of Education, the Regional Educational Laboratory Northeast and Islands, and several other professional organizations in Connecticut.


    The Visual Access to Mathematics professional development course is being offered for free to grade 7 math teachers in Connecticut as part of a research study. In the Visual Access to Mathematics course, teachers from across Connecticut will deepen understanding of visual representations such as double number lines for grade 7 ratio and proportion content, and they will learn strategies that can be integrated with their current mathematics curriculum to support English learners/multilingual learners while also benefitting all students.

    Grade 7 teachers who wish to participate will either have the opportunity to engage in the professional development in 2023-2024 or in 2024-2025 as part of the study. For the 2023-24 school year, the professional development will involve:

    • Summer Institute: 3 day in-person workshop August 15-17, 2023; at a location TBD in Connecticut
    • Online sessions:  six school-year sessions that include asynchronous activities and a small-group videoconference meeting
    • Online workshops: Two school-year 2-hour videoconference workshops  

    All participating teachers will receive a $325 stipend for completion of project research activities and have the option to earn graduate credit with payment of a graduate credit course fee.

    We are currently enrolling grade 7 mathematics teachers for the 2023-2024 school year. Individual teachers are welcome, but we encourage school teams of teachers to join to support school learning communities and institutional knowledge. We have attached a flyer with more information and encourage you to share with colleagues.


    If you are a Grade 7 mathematics teacher or a school or district leader interested in learning more, complete this form to sign up for an information session. The sessions are expected to last about 20 minutes and are being offered as follows:

    • Monday, March 20th 3:30pm
