MELT week-long Institutes are open to all K-12 and community college mathematics faculty. (Housing on campus is available.) MELT Institutes are developed to meet the needs of North Carolina teachers who are now using the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
MELT Institutes focus on mathematical content and instructional techniques which mirror the nature, philosophy, structure, and intent of the Common Core. Each Institute considers: appropriate and integrated mathematical content; instruction and learning through inquiry based methods, mathematical modeling, using technology, assessment strategies, reasoning and problem solving, Standards on Mathematical Practices, and investigating teacher and student beliefs; and the leadership needed for teachers to bring
their novel understanding and experiences back to their classrooms, schools, districts, and the state.
With the restructuring of these Institutes and the focus on the Common Core, even past MELT participants can benefit from this new program design. Therefore, all K-12 mathematics teachers and instructional coaches are invited to participate.
