Our successful first year of FCMTC meetings motivated us to host six FCMTC meetings again during the 2013-14 academic year. The sessions were led by mathematics professors and were well attended by enthusiastic middle school teachers.
All meetings were held after school from 4:30 – 6:00pm with refreshments from 4:15pm.
