MCMI PD for K–2 Math Educators

Metro Chicago Mathematics Initiative, Consortium Professional Development

University of Illinois at Chicago, Learning Sciences Research Institute


The Metro Chicago Mathematics Initiative (MCMI) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is offering a series of five full-day professional development sessions in 2018–2019: one for newly-participating teachers and four independent sessions for new and previously-participating teachers. Sessions are organized around the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice and Content and will incorporate the Mathematics Teaching Practices in Principles to Actions (NCTM, 2014), the TRU framework, and equity-based teaching practices that engage and meet the diverse needs learners. These sessions will focus on supporting teachers as they make decisions that support conceptual development of key math content and practices, and will incorporate project resources, including Math Talks, MARS tasks, Formative Assessment Lessons, and Problems of the Month. Sessions will also focus on developing sustainable professional learning community activities that can continue to impact teacher practice. 


Session 1*: MCMI: Core Practices, Routines, and Resources

Session 2: Meeting the Needs of All Learners

Session 3: Building Better Number Sense: Whole Numbers and Fractions

Session 4: Visual Representations and Spatial Reasoning

Session 5: Data and Statistics as Context: Data, Computing, and STEM Connections


 * Sessions marked with an asterisk are highly recommended for new participants as well as past participants wanting new inspiration for classic MCMI instructional ideas.
