Teaching Mathematical Thinking

Idaho State University has recently been approved by the Idaho State Department of Education to develop our own version of the MTI course being offered through Boise State University. Our course, Teaching Mathematical Thinking, meets the same criteria and certification requirements for renewals and out-of-state certificate holders. According to Idaho State Board Rules, IDAP 08-0202-1307, “[MTI] courses may be taught by all Idaho-approved preparation programs under a variety of course titles. Each must be approved, however, by the State Department of Education to ensure fidelity in curriculum.”

This three (3) credit course will be offered throughout the year: fall, spring, and summer; in various locations, to help make it more accessible for teachers across Regions 4, 5, and 6. Different grade level courses have been developed to focus on ‘Teaching Mathematical Thinking’ for elementary, middle-level, and high school teachers.

Below is a schedule for all TMT courses currently being offered through Idaho State University [provide link]. A separate link for each designated course is posted. You will be directed to Eventbrite for registration, where you simply click on the ‘reserve’ button to enroll. There is no cost to register; however, there will be a registration form that will be emailed directly to you. Be sure to complete and return the form with full payment one week prior to the start of the class, or your reservation will be offered to the next available person. No exceptions will be made. Please mail your form and payment to:
