Economic, Personal Finance for Teachers Class Set

Middle and high school educators can attend workshops this summer to learn classroom strategies that will help students apply concepts and processes of economics and personal finance.

These workshops, offered through the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, will be held June 17 for teachers of grades 6-8 and June 18 for teachers of grades 9-12. Both workshops will take place from 8:30 a.m. 3:30 p.m.at the Holiday Inn Campus Area in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Attendees will gain experience in applying concepts of algebra, percentages, geometry, graphing, numbers and operations, problem solving, and data analysis and probability in lessons that link mathematics and economics.

Participants will receive a textbook, "Mathematics and Economics: Connections for Life," courtesy of the workshop sponsors, State Farm Insurance and the AnnMarie Foundation (Phillips Plastics Corporation). Each text includes age-appropriate, complete and self-contained lessons that correspond with the National Standards for both mathematics and economics.

Registration fees for the noncredit professional development option are $29.95 for one workshop and $49.95 for both workshops. Participants seeking one undergraduate or graduate credit will pay the appropriate tuition. Partial tuition reimbursement may be available for qualifying teachers. Registration forms and full payment must be received by the Outreach and Graduate Studies Office by June 4, 2003, to ensure a place in the workshop. Forms are available through the Internet at http://www.uwrf.edu/outreach, or by calling the Outreach and Graduate Studies Office at 715/425-3256 or 800-228-5607.
