MATH Summit: Making Math Success A Reality In Michigan
‚Ä®March 30, 2009 • 8:15 am-4:00 pm • Kellogg Center, MSU
Jointly sponsored with MIEM, MDE, and the Education Trust

It seems like everywhere you go these days in Michigan, educators are talking about the new high school graduation requirements, particularly in Mathematics.  This Summit aims to continue the conversation and help educators collaborate for solutions. The work of Michigan educators and school systems will be highlighted, as well as presentations from national and state leaders, including State Superintendent Mike Flanagan.  With the Class of 2011 scheduled  for Algebra II next year, this Summit is one you and your team won't want to miss!

It is strongly recommended that districts bring teams of 4-6 to this event, including superintendents, curriculum administrators, building administrators, counselors, math teacher leaders, and math education support personnel.

The goals for this one-day summit are to have participants:
    •    Leave with a heightened understanding of the Michigan Merit Curriculum Mathematics Requirements
    •    Learn about models of promising practices
    •    Take away practical tools and resources for implementing programs and strategies
    •    Collaborate with your own district team to begin or enhance an action plan

A final guided team activity will offer structures to support shared leadership for student learning. The summit is sponsored by MDE, MASSP, MIEM, and The Education Trust.
