We invite teachers of Mathematics or Sciences, at the high school or college level, to consider participating in a three-day workshop at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. The goal of the workshop is to present new ideas for topics that could fit into a mathematics (calculus) or science curriculum. Teachers in other subjects, such as music, computers, or art, may also be interested. Up to 20 participants will receive mini-grants of $150.
This class was one of the most interesting and useful classes that I have ever taken.... The theory based class is difficult to accomplish in a high school setting... Application tied to the theory, in my opinion, is the smartest way to teach a high school student of today. This class was exactly that. I wish that I had a course like this one my first time through college. -- Eric Bultemeier, high school teacher & workshop participant.

- We have compiled a preliminary list of topics for this year's workshop; the organizers welcome participants' suggestions for other topics of interest.
- This workshop is offered with the option of Continuing Education credit at IPFW. Interested participants can earn one credit in mathematics and one in physics; these may be used for accreditation purposes. To take part in this aspect, you must register with IPFW's Division of Continuing Studies and pay the appropriate registration and tuition fees.
- The program will be held in Kettler Hall, on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. Parking for participants is free.
- Participants from out of town are responsible for making their own arrangements for a place to stay. Local lodging information is available.
- This workshop is part of the Mathematics Throughout the Curriculum project, which is supported by the National Science Foundation.
We offer on-line registration for participants. Note that registering through our website does not automatically register you for Continuing Education credit; to register for credit, you must also contact Continuing Studies.This site maintained by Matt Walsh
