The VMI is Offering Math as a Second Language this Fall!

The Vermont Mathematics Initiative, in partnership with Windsor Central Supervisory Union (WCSU), is offering its signature course, Mathematics as a Second Language beginning September 25th in Woodstock, Vermont.  There is still some space available for teachers who wish to enroll.

Mathematics as a Second Language course provides teachers with the opportunity to dig deeper in understanding arithmetic and algebra. The objective is to provide a solid conceptual understanding of the operations of arithmetic, as well as the interrelationships among arithmetic, algebra, and geometry.  Successful completion of this course guarantees admittance in the full VMI master’s degree program should one desire to continue their learning.

The course will kick off on September 25th at 8:30 a.m. with a full day of class (lunch provided by VMI) and will be followed by after-school sessions on:  October 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th; November 6th, 13th and 21st; and, December 5th.  These sessions will run from 3:30-7:00.

Instructors for this course will be Fran Huntoon and Luke Fisher, both former elementary teachers and long-time VMI instructors.  Three graduate credits will be issued through Southern NH University.  The cost for this course is $1650.00.
