31st Annual RUSMP Summer Campus Program in June with academic-year follow-up sessions
June 5-9 and 12-15, 2017 (8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.)
 This highly acclaimed professional development program develops participants' use of engaging, student-center, inquiry-based instructional methods for mathematics instruction, their use of a variety of ongoing formative assessment strategies aligned to the TEKS to guide instruction, and effective, appropriate use of technology. Participants receive materials and technology, stipends (summer and academic year), and graduate and gifted education hours.
Cost: $1800 (The actual cost of the full-year program is significantly higher and is partially funded by other sources.)

Elementary (K-3):
 A focus on algebraic thinking and number with an emphasis on mathematical processes (limited number of spots available)
Intermediate (4-6): A focus on algebraic thinking and number with an emphasis on mathematical processes (limited number of spots available)
Middle School (7-8): A focus on important algebraic topics and number in middle school curriculum (limited number of spots available)
High School: A focus on algebraic topics from Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Precalculus (spots available)
 
2017 RUSMP July One-week Courses:   Cost: $1000 per course
 
Developing Number Operations in Grades K-2: July 10 - 13 (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.)
This course is designed to support t eachers of Grades K-2 as they develop their students' understanding of counting, cardinality, and place value. Conceptual and procedural understanding of operations with whole numbers will be emphasized. (limited number of spots available)
Developing Algebraic Thinking in Grades 3-5: July 17 - 20 (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.)
This course is designed for teachers of Grades 3-5 who are seeking to strengthen their students' understanding of algebraic concepts. The primary focus of the course is developing algebraic thinking with an emphasis on mathematical processes. (spots available)
Developing Algebraic Thinking Across Middle School and High School: July 17 - 20 (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.)
This course is designed to support middle and high school mathematics teachers as they develop students' understanding of the important algebraic concepts taught in Grades 6-12. (spots available)
