Register now for the AMDM Summer Institute

May 15, 2019|By Dana Center Communications

Registration Open for the AMDM Summer Institute

Advanced Quantitative Reasoning (AQR), also known as Advanced Mathematical Decision Making (AMDM), covers a range of mathematics topics presented in applied contexts, including statistics and finance, that develop students’ college and career readiness skills. This 12th-grade capstone course engages students in relevant problems and prepares them for higher education and the workplace.

The Dana Center’s Advanced Mathematical Decision Making Using Advanced Quantitative Reasoning course materials, updated in the spring of 2017, have been enhanced to provide 100% support for the TEKS adopted in 2012, including an entirely new unit that addresses geometric concepts, matrices, and truth tables.

***Registration for the AMDM/AQR Summer Institute is now closed. Fill out this form if you are interested in future professional learning opportunities for AMDM.

During this institute, you will:

  • Experience selected student activities and course projects from the perspectives of both a learner and a teacher. 
  • Engage in classroom strategies using the AMDM/AQR curriculum. Though applicable for any high school math courses, these strategies will transform your classroom into a project-based learning environment and will incorporate standards-based grading. 
  • Network with participants from other high schools and collaborate on how to facilitate and assess student learning using the course’s instructional model. 

As an institute participant, you will receive printed and electronic copies of the 2017 AMDM/AQR teacher materials
