Department of Mathematics, Stanford University
The Education Program for Teachers of Mathematics (EPTM) is
a new distance learning program offered by the Department of Mathematics
at Stanford University through the Stanford University Continuing
Studies Program, and in cooperation with Stanford University's
Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY). EPTM courses use
state-of-the-art multimedia technology to provide K-12 mathematics
teachers with the opportunity to continue their education, and to
deepen their understanding of mathematics.
The founders of EPTM believe strongly that the more teachers know and appreciate mathematics, the more easily and effectively this knowledge and appreciation can be passed on to their students
This program consists of computer-based courses designed specifically for K-12 teachers of mathematics. Teachers can continue to supplement their mathematical education in a manner that fits their individual schedules.
To further enrich and extend their understanding of advanced mathematics, teachers can enroll through EPTM in EPGY's university-level mathematics courses:
