Who we are …
Math teachers from all over Chicagoland and beyond, from early childhood educators to high school teachers to college professors, from teachers just starting their careers to experienced educators to wise retirees, and industry professionals with a love for math and math education.
We are Affiliate #1 of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. That national organization was founded through the efforts of the MMC.
What we do …
- Provide professional development opportunities for math educators
- Encourage the growth and well-being of the math teaching profession
- Provide a social outlet for professionals to share their stories and collaborate
How we do it …
The MMC hosts dinner meetings an online webinars at least six times per year, featuring world-class speakers on topics important to math educators. Folks like Howie Hua, Zalman Usiskin, Eli Luberoff, Marian Dingle, and Gail Burrell have shared their expertise with us.
We host an annual Conference of Workshops, where teachers from around the Midwest come to share their lessons with us.
Special Saturday and Summer Workshops allow even deeper learning with our dinner speakers and members.
