Online Learning to Fit Your Schedule

Who should lead mathematics instruction at the elementary school level

Take your professional learning online and expand your math support system with these online courses and workshops designed to fit your schedule.

Using Children's Literature to Support Mathematical Understanding


We all love finding a great piece of children’s literature to share with our students, the kind of book that makes kids lean in and listen. Part of the power of a good book is that the book invites people in, shares different perspectives, and tells stories that help us make sense of the world. Children’s literature offers all of this and more. It can support kids in learning math too! Join us for this virtual workshop and discover how you can use children’s literature to support math learning for all students.



Math Foundations


After a year full of stops and starts, it has become clear that flexibility is more important than ever when it comes to teaching and learning. The same is true for professional learning, which is why we have reimagined our Summer Institutes to offer our most customizable summer courses ever. 

This summer we are going back to basics with seven new mini courses designed to ground you in the most important foundational math concepts. Each course will explore a major math content area where students struggle most, while empowering you with the tools and confidence you need to make informed decisions in your math classroom. 

Comprised of just two virtual half days, these mini courses are designed to be a manageable way to engage in meaningful math learning from anywhere. Choose the courses that work best for you and get ready to refresh your math content knowledge without changing your summer plans. 

  • Fractions
  • Addition & Subtraction
  • Linearity
  • Solving Equations
  • Place Value
  • Multiplication & Division

Summer 2022 Math Foundations course dates coming soon!
