Meredith Mathematics & Science Institutes / Home

Meredith Mathematics & Science Institutes (MMSI) offers quality, residential professional development opportunities that focus on important mathematics and science content for K through High School. The summer Institutes are designed for all classroom teachers, resource teachers, lead teachers, mathematics/science coordinators and supervisors.

We want to thank all of our consultants and attendees for a wonderful week of professional development during MMSI 2015! Please check out the 2016 schedule early next year and plan to join us for an awesome MMSI Summer 2016!

This year we also offered a Summer 2015 LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE at MMSI

The Leadership Institute was a special opportunity for educators with K-6 leadership responsibilities.A week-long institute designed especially for principals, supervisors, coordinators, and full-time lead teachers.


We had an amazing institute with close to 500 teachers attending 27 different professional development options. Below are some quotes from MMSI 2015.

This was a fabulous training! I have so much to take back to my co-workers and classroom. This left me ready to practice these things in my room.

This was my first time in attending MMSI and I thoroughly enjoyed my class. Not sure how or what you could do to improve it but if it possible I am sure you will.

Both of my sessions were engaging and full of relevant information.

This is my 4th year and every year has been a great experience.

Just keep offering sessions. Good PD is so hard to find and I can always count on these MMSI sessions to be of high quality.

This workshop was so excellent; I cannot think about any suggestions but to add a day number 3!

You guys always do an excellent job sending me away revitalized and with great strategies.

I am inspired. Sometimes I come out of PD wondering how things are relevant to the courses I teach that are fourth year math and beyond. Thanks for the diversification.

I will be sharing MMSI with my teachers and looking at our budget to see how many we can send next year!
