The CMSE aims to improve STEM education by offering professional development through workshops, conferences, and institutes for teachers of mathematics and science. All CMSE professional development opportunities engage classroom teachers in hands-on, research-based tasks and instructional strategies that are aligned with state and national curriculum standards. The goal of the CMSE Professional Development Division is to aid teachers in developing a student-centered classroom environment that fosters conceptual understanding of mathematics and science.
