Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Massachusetts (ATMIM) Professional Development Opportunities
ATMIM runs two yearly conferences -- one in the Winter and one in the Spring. These conferences are open to all ATMIM members.
In addition, ATMIM members can attend ATMNE (Association of Teachers of Mathematics in New England) conferences at their membership rates. For information on ATMNE conferences, please visit:
Mathematics and Computer Science (MACS) Collaborative at Bridgewater State University
The Mathematics and Computer Science (MACS) Collaborative at Bridgewater State University has a proud twenty-two year history of providing meaningful professional development for area mathematics educators. It is the Collaborative’s goal to provide opportunities for teachers to see the “big picture” of improved mathematics teaching and learning through experiences that broaden and deepen their own understanding of mathematics concepts and effective pedagogy.
Each year, MACS develops a series of workshops based upon a carefully selected and relevant theme.
Each of the four seminars presented this school year offer four sessions for teachers to choose from based on their grade level (PreK-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12). Most of the sessions are presented in two parts and focus on a particular strand of the Massachusetts Mathematics framework, allowing teachers to take the learning back to their classrooms before reconvening for a follow-up session.

Collaborative Project at Salem State College (CPMSIE)
The Collaborative Project is a cooperative venture among more than one thousand individuals with representation from schools, colleges, businesses and industries, centered on the North Shore of Boston. The goal of this alliance of member schools and school districts with a student population of over 62,000 is to make schools more competitive in mathematics, science and technology education.
Since the beginning in 1983, the Collaborative Project has produced a variety of high quality events including all-day courses, after-school teacher group meetings and seminars, a video library, a telecommunication network, the annual Women in Science and Engineering Conference (W.I.S.E.) for girls in grades 6-8l, and local curriculum development sessions. We hold to extremely high standards in selecting workshop presenters; they are screened by teacher group leaders and the Collaborative Project staff to get the best possible talent for the topics teachers have requested.
