COMING SOON: MERIT & FAME Applications for 2018!

MERIT and FAME cohort applications will be released soon.


MERIT is for K-14 instructors who want to take their teaching to the next level with student-centered pedagogical practices and technology integration. MERIT runs July 9 through July 20th, with four follow-ups (on Saturdays in Fall and Winter quarters).


FAME (a blended program) is for math teachers of students in grades six through tenth. Teachers explore technology integration as well as algebra, pre-algebra, and transformational geometry concepts with an emphasis on topics that students often find challenging to learn.


A new FAME program is in the works for math teachers of students grades four and five. Stay tuned for more information on this new development!
