A group of 20 teachers began participation in mid-2016. Funding has recently opened for a second group of teachers to begin in January 2017.
Support only applies to participants taking the spring/summer 2017 on-campus TQ program courses (MATH 5346 for high school teachers, MATH 5376 and 5377 for grades 4-8 teachers), and may not be transferred to any other program. Applicants must be instructors of record for at least one class of grades 4-12 mathematics. In addition, admission to graduate studies generally requires an undergraduate GPA near or above 3.0/4.0.
IMPORTANT: Applicants who are offered, and accept, support through our TQ grant will then be responsible for timely completion (by December 20, 2016) of an application to the
UTA Graduate School,
which includes having transcripts of prior university work sent directly
to UTA from the institution(s) where the work was performed. The application
for admission to the UTA Graduate School is completely separate and
independent of applying for grant funding. Selected
applicants must be successfully admitted as graduate students at UTA in
order to participate in program activities. Selection for TQ support does
not guarantee admission to the UTA Graduate School, and is contingent
upon successful admission and registration. We suggest you wait to pay the
application fee to the graduate school until you have received and accepted
an offer of support through the TQ grant.
NOTE: Applicants must apply for admission either as a degree-seeking candidate or as a non-degree-seeking "special student" in mathematics. The 4-8 cohort should choose between degree-seeking for the M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, "open option" with a concentration in K-8 mathematics education, or a non-degree-seeking student in mathematics, with a concentration in K-8 mathematics education. The high school cohort should choose between degree-seeking for the M.A. in Mathematics or a non-degree-seeking student in mathematics, with a concentration in secondary mathematics education.
In accordance with funding guidelines, preference in selecting TQ applicants will be given to:

2007-2008: Ten new participants joined the project for the 2007-2008 project year (June 2007 through May 2008), with ten others returning from the previous year. The latter group completed the six-course program in May 2008. This cohort gave 10 presentations at CAMT 2008 (click here for the schedule).
2008-2009: The 2008-09 cohort included ten returning participants as well as twelve new ones, with teachers from Arlington, Fort Worth, Mansfield, and HEB ISDs. Returning participants completed the six-course program in May 2009. The teachers in this cohort made 11 presentations at CAMT 2009 in Houston (click here for the schedule).
2009-2010: The 2009-2010 cohort included eight returning participants as well as fifteen new ones. Coursework began in August 2009 and ran through late June 2010. Participants made 14 presentations at CAMT 2010 in San Antonio (click here for the schedule).
2010-2011: The 2010-2011 cohort included thirteen returning participants as well as seven new ones. Coursework ran from August 2010 through June 2011. Participants made 11 presentations at CAMT 2011 in Grapevine (click here for the schedule).
2009-2011 MSTTPA Cohort: A separate grant, also funded by THECB, supported a cohort of 23 FWISD elementary math coaches to complete the program in K-8 mathematics education during the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 school years, under the auspices of the UT Arlington Mathematics Teacher Preparation Academy. This academy was funded by the MSTTPA program, a sister program to TQ.
2011-2012: The 2011-2012 cohort included eight returning participants as well as 14 new ones. Coursework ran from August 2011 through June 2012. The 2011-2012 cohort also included nine returning participants who had already completed the six-course graduate program in K-8 mathematics education. These participants engaged in a year-long seminar focused on Teacher Questioning in Mathematics.
2012-2013: The 2012-2013 cohort included 13 returning participants as well as 10 new ones. Coursework ran from August 2012 through June 2013.
2013-2014: The 2013-2014 cohort included 6 returning participants as well as 12 new ones. Coursework ran from August 2013 through June 2014.
