Mathematics is a complex topic and can be intimidating to many students. Math can also be challenging for adults. Unfortunately, over 90% of school systems only test and teach a small portion of the many interconnected parts of mathematics – leaving wide gaps in students’ future learning capabilities. DMTI offers a thorough, research-based approach to math education that addresses all foundational aspects of what it means to learn, and love, mathematics.
DMTI offers professional development for teachers to enhance their knowledge and improve their math instruction.
DMTI offers solutions to schools and parents.
The Primary Math Assessment (PMA) can be used to predict children's areas of math strengths and limitations.
The Developing Mathematical Thinking (DMT)
approach has five interrelated components.
1. Building on students’ ideas
2. Modeling the mathematics
3. Creating conceptual and procedured knowledge
4. Infusing structual language
5. Addressing misconceptions
The Developing Mathematical Thinking Institute (DMTI) is dedicated to enhancing students’ learning of mathematics by supporting educators in the implementation of research-based instructional strategies through high-quality professional development, curricular resources and assessments. Here is how we Develop Mathematical Thinking.
Complete Math Program
Customized professional development and workshops for schools and math educators to augment teaching process, skill sets, and overarching quality of learning experiences for students.
Ongoing Embedded Support
Next, we take you through a progressive and systematic process to develop and use a curriculum that improves the math learning experiences for both educators and students.
The DMTI Math Pack ensures you have all the tools you need to complete the official DMTI Activities. The tools provide an engaging and effective learning experience proven to help children achieve success. There are two options: Basic and Advanced.
The DMT Institute was Developed by Dr. Jonathan Brendefur, Mathematics Education Professor
6th Grade Teacher
“Using the (DMTI) modules to teach fractions was the best thing I did all year. I struggled with fractions when I was a student and never felt comfortable teaching fractions to my kids.”
5th Grade Teacher
“Having (DMTI staff) in my classroom was the best experience! My kids loved having an expert teach them. I learned more from team teaching that 45 minute lesson than I could have possibly imagined. It was so helpful!”
