happy childWho are we?

 

We are the Center For Teaching and Learning Mathematics (CTLM).

We are part of the College of Humanities, Arts, and Sciences at the University of Northern Iowa.

We are committed to supporting teachers by providing high quality professional development.

We strive to assist teachers, students, and parents in making sense of mathematics.

We have created video and print resources for both teachers and families in the areas of mathematics, literacy, early childhood and the autism spectrum.

We would love to hear from you if you are a teacher or district who is seeking professional development, or a parent who is seeking resources to help your child!

Mascoutah Math Mania Summer Camp

Mascoutah Math Mania (M-Cubed) Summer Enrichment Camp offers students the opportunity to advance their mathematical skills, to deepen their number sense, and to reach to greater math heights. It is being offered to students whose math test scores fell between 50% and 75%, in the "at or above" categories on the district level assessment. Teacher recommendations and math grades also were considered.

The camp curriculum spans over two summers known as Year A and Year B. This curriculum rotates so that the experience is different for the campers every other summer.
