Projects:

**Contextual Teaching and Learning in Mathematics**This is part of The Contextual Teaching and Learning Project at UGA. This Project started in the Fall 1998 as part of a 3-year contract from the U.S. Department of Education to develop a Model of Excellence for Contextual Teaching and Learning in Preservice Teacher Education. This is a joint project of the School of Teacher Education and the School of Leadership and Lifelong Learning in the College of Education.**Teacher Quality Enhancement Plan (P-16)**provides four mathematics courses for certified teachers at the middle grade level who could benefit from additional course work in mathematics. The four content areas would be Number Theory, Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, and Probability and Statistics. The aim is to upgrade the content backgrounds and pedagogical knowledge of the middle grade mathematics teachers. The courses are taught in Conyers in Rockdale County. I am the instructor for the Summer 2000 Number Theory course.-
**InterMath**is a statewide Internet based inservice for middle school mathematics teachers that focuses on using technology tools in mathematics and increasing the mathematical knowledge base of the teacher. See also the**objectives**for InterMath. -
**Interactive Mathematics Dictionary**is for middle school students, teachers, parents, and anyone else interested in learning more about mathematical topics in the middle school curriculum.
