Advanced Perspectives on Secondary Mathematics (Workshop)

This workshop uses ideas from advanced mathematics, specifically real analysis and abstract algebra, to uncover new perspectives on secondary mathematics topics. The first day of the workshop will focus on ideas from real analysis, the second on ideas from abstract algebra. The workshop will consist of a half-dozen modules that each consider a specific secondary topic and give teachers time to explore a related task from an abstract context.
