Professional Development Opportunities


The CMSE aims to improve STEM education by offering professional development through workshops, conferences, and institutes for teachers of mathematics and science.  The CMSE also provides educational opportunities for college students, such as scholarships, fellowships, and training programs. CMSE professional development opportunities are:

→ Research-based
→ Focused on student engagement with hands-on activities
→ Designed to develop student-centered classrooms, helpful in creating classroom environments that foster conceptual understanding of mathematics and science
→ Aligned to state and national curriculum standards


Registration Cancellation Policy for Online Events:
It is the goal of the Professional Development Division within the Center for Mathematics and Science Education (CMSE) at the University of Mississippi to provide high-quality research-based professional training for teachers, administrators, and other school leaders. In order to adequately prepare for professional development events, an accurate accounting of the number of participants must be known by the registration deadline. Therefore, any registrant who needs to cancel their registration must do so no later than 11:59 pm (CST) on the published registration deadline. Registrants who cancel before the registration deadline will be eligible to receive a partial refund of registration fees less a 10% processing fee.

Changes in registration can be made via email to cmsepd@go.olemiss.edu or by calling 662-915-6621. Effective May 7, 2020.
  • Modeling with mathematics requires students to pose and explore real-world questions, identify and define relevant quantities, as well as test and revise mathematical models to answer these questions. In this one-day workshop, participants will discuss the modeling process and explore problems that engage elementary and secondary students in mathematical modeling.
