AMTNJ-DIMACS Provides Professional Development

Seats are still available!

Neil Cooperman, DIMACS-AMTNJ Liaison and AMTNJ Past-President, says “Seats are still available at the remaining 2017 AMTNJ/Rutgers DIMACS Workshops.”

“These workshops are sponsored by the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New Jersey (AMTNJ) with the cooperation of DIMACS (the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science) and the Rutgers Department of Mathematics,” says Cooperman.

He says, “All workshops are full-day workshops at which participants will earn six (6) professional development hours. All workshops will take place on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Participants may attend single or multiple workshops in any order.

The fee for each full-day workshop is $195. Discounts are available for multiple registrations on a single purchase order.”
