Summer Geometry Institute for Teachers, August 8 - 13

The ninth NWMI Summer Geometry Institute is an amazing week of immersion in geometry. A variety of topics are investigated using a wide spectrum of active and hands-on approaches, from paper-folding and polyhedral models to Geometer's Sketchpad.

New! Four-day Middle Grades Program New!

Monday 8/9 - Thursday 8/12

Connections to CMP and Reform Curricula!

Enrollment priority and special financial support for teachers in Seattle Public Schools (but some spaces will be available for other teachers)

Investigations Minicourses for Teachers, August 9 - 12

A menu of NWMI minicourses will provide something of interest to every math teacher. Each minicourse offers 15 hours of hands-on, in-depth exploration of a fascinating math topic relevant to school mathematics.

Session A: (Monday, 8/9 - Tuesday, 8/10)

  • The World of Polyhedra
  • Teaching with Data

Session B: (Wednesday, 8/11 - Thursday, 8/12)

  • Counting & Number Patterns

"This program is the best around. It not only has excellent people running the program during the summer, but the activities during the year and reunions keep the program alive." -- an NWMI alum

"It is practice and not theory. Our district has started to adopt textbooks and teaching goals that reflect the methods and goals from NWMI. NWMI was not the only influence but it led and modeled the reforms which are student based learning, inquiry, discovery, and problem solving." -- an NWMI alum

Origami Polyhedron

NWMI geometry comprises a wide spectrum of mathematics and teaching methods, including:

Polyhedra! Quilts! Projects! Kites! Transformations! Discovery! Conics! Spheres! Geometer's Sketchpad! Drawing! Cabri Geometry!
