The Center for the Advancement of Mathematics and Science Education at Black Hills State University is accepting applications for a 2018 summer grant supported math education course.

ED 692 Visible Algebra is a grant supported course. The content of the course is more about middle school level topics and the growth students make before middle school. Teachers of 5th to 8th will have priority acceptance as well as those in the MSCI program at BHSU. This course may be eligible as substitute for a needed math specialization course for those in the MSCI with math specialization program. Contact Deann Kertzman  ( for more information.

Location: BHSU Spearfish In person June 11 – 14 with online follow-up
$40 pre credit for a total of $80 for the 2 graduate credits
A $250 stipend is available for completing the course.
Lodging is available for those driving > 70 miles one-way.
Everyone attending will be provided lunches.

Enrollment is limited due to limits on grant funding.
You would be notified by May 1, 2018 if you are accepted into the class.

To apply:

Computational Astronomy for Math and Science Teachers 


March 23-24, 2018 at Augustana University. 

It is funded by a Space Grant Project Innovation Grant award.  Teachers receive 1 graduate credit (ED-699) free of charge (a $350 value, courtesy of the NASA grant,) as well as lesson plans to use in the classroom. The teachers need to have had basic college algebra and trigonometry. 

This is the last of three workshops funded under this $25,000 NASA grant.  The first two workshops were at SDSM&T, but this one will be at Augustana University, making it much easier for East River teachers to attend!  Dr. Don Teets, one of the workshop professors, will present a talk on the workshop at the SD Science and Math Teachers’ joint conference in Huron on Saturday, Feb. 10.
