East Bay Math Teachers’ Circle
Founded in 2017, the East Bay Math Teachers’ Circle (EBMTC) provides meetings for local math teachers, where they can build professional contacts, swap trade information, and connect with local mathematicians. The EBMTC promotes problem-solving in the classroom, continuing professional development, love for mathematics, and opportunities for the community to come together—in a vertically integrated way. We hold regular meetings, at which teachers have a chance to talk over dinner, and then to participate in an exploration of a math problem.
The East Bay Math Teachers’ Circle meets regularly in two locations:
- Lafayette: Stanley Middle School library, 3455 School St.
- Hayward: CSU East Bay, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd.
