Atrium Summer Math Institute
69 Grove St., Watertown, MA
What is the Summer Math Institute?
The Atrium Summer Math Institute is a three-day, in-person program that provides teachers, coaches, and administrators space to learn together, inspiring curricular shifts at their school site. This year our focus is on building positive math identities for both teachers and students. Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with educators from different grade levels, but will also break out into grade-level strands for more grade-specific work. These workshops are centered around designing hands-on lessons, rich mathematical projects, and opportunities to experiment with abstract concepts through concrete experiences. It is our belief that providing these experiences allows ALL students to access and challenge themselves with mathematical skills and practices that are integral to their individual math identities.
