boston college mathematics institute
The Mathematics Institute has sponsored many programs for teachers of mathematics since its inception in 1957. In the early years, the National Science Foundation provided funding for the Institute's professional development courses. Grants have also been received from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Eisenhower Education Act, and private foundations.
In the summer of 2003, the Mathematics Institute offered middle-school teachers a timely content course addressing the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.
