Welcome to VMI’s Inaugural 2020 New Hampshire Cohort

The VMI is Now coming to New Hampshire in Fall 2020

The nationally recognized Vermont Mathematics Initiative (VMI), in partnership with SNHU, is offering its signature course Mathematics as a Second Language (MSL) in two locations across New Hampshire beginning in Fall 2020.  MSL will be followed by the second course in the graduate sequence, Functions and Algebra, in Spring 2021.  SNHU and VMI are making this opportunity available to all PreK-8 New Hampshire teachers, with no obligation to join the master’s program.  However, upon successful completion of these courses, acceptance into the VMI’s full master’s degree program is guaranteed for those who wish to continue, with the six credits earned transferring into the program.

VMI will offer these courses in both Exeter and Concord, NH.  Classes are held on four, Friday-Saturday “weekends” starting at 3:00 on Friday and a full day on Saturday.  

Exeter schedule:  October 2-3; October 23-24; November 13-14; and, December 4-5

Concord schedule:  September 25-26; October 16-17; November 6-7; and, December 4-5.

  • This was an extremely rewarding and educational experience. I can’t say enough about the teaching and learning experiences I’ve had through VMI. They were the reason I applied to the program, and I’ve gotten far more from them than I could have imagined. VMI is an amazing program.
