Teaching Educators About Mathematics is a mathematics education organization for UNI’s Elementary and Middle Grades Education Majors who have an interest in mathematics.
The focus of our organization is twofold: service and professional development. Each meeting features innovative lessons designed to introduce challenging mathematical topics in unique ways. Also, members are encouraged to attend, and even submit talks to, professional meetings at the state, regional, and national levels.
The service component centers on a Math Fair for area elementary students held in the spring. Last February at the inaugural event, more than 60 elementary students from throughout the Cedar Valley experienced mathematics in engaging, interactive environments facilitated by the membership.
