If you are on the leadership team of a Community for Mathematics Inquiry in Teaching (COMMIT), or are considering joining one, this page is for you. We currently have funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF-DUE #1925188) to support and study eight particular COMMIT communities. As part of this project we are providing financial support for activities and collaborations in those regions, and we are developing a toolkit with effective practices to create a regional community of practice. For more details on this, click the NSF Project page in the menu at the top of your screen.
Over time we will expand this page of resources with this toolkit for starting and maintaining a COMMIT Community. If you have a resource that could benefit community leaders, please share it with us at COMathInquiry@gmail.com.
COMMIT Case Studies
Interested in finding out more about the inner workings of a COMMIT community? Take a look at the article about one in Upstate New York, and a BLOG posting about another in New England. Each provides a deep dive into their local programming, leadership teams, and community building activities, with tips and cautions for leading your own community.
Workshop: Build a COMMIT Community
Want to create a regional community in your area? Join us at one of our Community Building workshops. These were developed through the Academy of IBL (NSF-DUE #1525058) as part of their traveling workshop series, and are now administered by the COMMIT Network (NSF-DUE #1925188). Contact COMathInquiry@gmail.com to request a workshop for your coalescing leadership team.
Future COMMIT communities
Are you in a place where you don't know enough mathematics educators using inquiry techniques to be confident starting a community? Add yourself to a national list of interested people. We’ll help network you with others in your region once there is a quorum, and include you in one of our workshops about building a community.
Logistics & Branding
All our COMMIT communities are encouraged to have a website and google calendar. For information on building these, and linking them with us, click the button below. You can also find information there about our logo and color scheme.
