Math Their Way®
Materials to Bring on the first day...
On subsequent days...
Class Time Schedule
Each session is carefully planned and interrelated. You will need to be present for the entire time each day. For the days that have scheduled lunch breaks, you will need to bring a bag lunch unless places to eat are very close to the site. There will be a half-hour lunch break. (See acceptance letter for details.) There will be homework each day.
Participants are expected to attend all class sessions. Should a participant miss a class, s/he must make arrangements with the instructor to make up for the missed class. At the discretion of the instructor, a project may be required to make up for the missed time. Extended absence may result in an incomplete for the course.
Course Texts and other Materials
The course fee does not include the book for each course. You may take the workshop if you do not have a copy of the book. However, it is helpful to have access to a copy of it during the workshop. Books may be ordered through the Center's Materials Catalog, at the on-line store (www.center.edu) or by calling (800) 395-6088. If you are from out of town, you need not bring these additional materials.
Please allow 4 weeks for us to process your refund.
The Center regrets that it is sometimes necessary to cancel a workshop due to unforeseen circumstances. Participants from cancelled workshops will be notified by telephone or mail prior to the first day of the workshop and will receive a full refund of paid enrollment fees.
Pick one idea, area, or activity from your workshop or from the recommended text that you have experienced with students. Examples include: an activity in which students generated the data, organized it, and looked for patterns in a table or matrix; a graphing activity; or a science investigation.
Describe in writing:
Label the project with your name, course number, course title, and date completed. You may include pictures of students doing the activity and samples of their work.
Give the project to the instructor during the workshop. Verify with the instructor that your name is checked off the official class list as having turned in a project. Projects will not be returned. Do not mail your project to the Center before the workshop.
Participants who do not submit their projects before the end of the workshop will receive an "incomplete" on their transcript. The incomplete grade remains on the transcript until the Center receives the required project. Projects completed after the last day of the class must be mailed to the Center for Innovation in Education.

Each of the fifty states and the many districts within each state differ in their policies for acceptability of units of credit. Check with either your district or state officials in advance of the workshop to determine whether any of the available credit options will serve the purpose for which you intend them. Participants may make any arrangements they wish with local colleges or universities for the transferability of credit for work successfully completed.
Neither Center Graduate College nor LMU is authorized to issue units of academic credit for workshops taken in the states of Colorado, Connecticut, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma or Pennsylvania. Center Graduate College's units of credit are not accepted in Kansas and North Dakota. In the nine states mentioned above, LMU has other credit options. For details, call LMU at (310) 338-1971.
Participants wishing to attend the workshop on an audit basis may do so. The fee for audit is the same as that for CEUs and Center Graduate College credit.
