PIs, faculty, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, advisory board members, and Fellows from other CLTs will join together in an intensive five-day school consisting of three short courses, research presentations, and meetings of CEMELA-wide research teams to continue working on collaborative site projects.

The three short courses offered this summer are:

  2. Mathematics Assessment and ELLs/Latino Students
    • Instructor: Richard Kitchen, UNM
  3. Course on Mathematics: An Elementary Introduction to the P-Adics
    • Instructor: Taliesin Sutton, UA

The CEMELA School will be held from Sunday, June 23, 2008 (evening) to Friday, June 27, 2008 (ending at 5 pm). You should plan on arriving Sunday, June 23, 2008 and departing on Saturday, June 28, 2008.
