  1. Increase their Pre-Algebra and Algebra I conceptual knowledge
  2. Demonstrate increased mathematical learning
  3. Practice exemplary instructional strategies and reflect on their pedagogy
  4. Analyze curricular and assessment choices that affect student learning
  5. Share best practices within collaborative groups throughout the year
  6. Become effective teacher leaders for coherent mathematics education
  1. Stipends for attendance
