CMP at 2017 Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics (MCTM)
AJ Edson and Yvonne Grant went north to Traverse City, Michigan to give a talk, Modeling as Context for Learning About Linear Relationships, at this year's MCTM conference. Their session focused on how modeling can be used as context to develop students' understandings of linear relationships in middle grades classrooms.
Best Wishes to Tyler Boyd
After the CMP Summer Workshops, we said our goodbyes to Tyler Boyd. Tyler has been a CMP undergraduate assistant since May 2014. Tyler graduated from MSU this summer and is spending some time in Argentina. We will miss Tyler very much but are happy for him as he begins the next phase of his life.
