Math Content Courses K-12

Content & Skills for Classroom Success

Students grapple with a variety of concepts and understandings as they grow as mathematicians. Our K-12 workshops delve into mathematics content and instructional practices that address key areas of learning and development, so that teachers feel better equipped to provide meaningful math experiences for their students.

Current K-12 Offerings

Early Learning Series - Developing Young Mathematicians

Our ‘Developing Young Mathematicians’ (DYM) workshop series explores foundational math concepts for kids ages 3-6. Participants will explore and discuss how teachers can tap into young learners’ natural curiosity and the power of play to develop mathematical thinking.

Workshop Topics:

  • Counting & Number Sense
  • Shapes & Spatial Reasoning
  • Adding & Subtracting
  • Measurement

Understanding and Acting on Student Needs

The Math Institute is excited to partner with Student Achievement Partners on this professional learning opportunity for K-6 Wisconsin educators and math leaders.

Addressing student understanding of mathematics after two years of lost instructional time is a critical need. In this full day session you will experience and understand formative assessment practices that give meaningful information to teachers and support students’ mathematical identity. We will examine the March 2021 released What Works Clearinghouse: Assisting Students Struggling with Mathematics: Intervention in the Elementary Grades and consider where students are in their mathematical understanding. Connections among the research-based mathematics interventions and recommendations to equitable math practices found in the guide will be examined. Throughout the session participants will engage with ideas to support students’ social, emotional and academic development and strengthen coherence between what students know and how to best support their mathematical understanding moving forward.

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 to supporting kids in learning math too! Join us as we engage in an interactive day of learning in which we use children’s literature to support math learning for all students.
