Idaho State University has recently partnered with the Idaho State Department of Education to develop a professional development course, Teaching Mathematical Thinking, as part as the Idaho Math Initiative to ensure teachers are given the opportunity to stay current in mathematical education and research for their classrooms.

This course provides an opportunity to study fundamental mathematical theory underlying the content area of number and operation and structures of algebraic thinking. Topics will include: meanings of operations and how they relate to one another, computation within the number system as a foundation for algebra, the use of mathematical models, and the understanding student thinking. Emphasis will be given to developing ideas about multiplicative thinking, proportional reasoning, and algebraic reasoning.

Teaching Mathematical Thinking is a three (3) credit course that will be offered year round in various location throughout Regions 4, 5, and 6. Courses for every grade level: elementary, middle, and high school have been developed to ensure teachers have the tools necessary to educate their students and ensure they are successful in math. Below is a schedule for all TMT courses currently being offered through Idaho State University:
