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.

Formative assessment is often defined as assessment for learning. But what does assessment for learning look like in a math classroom? What should teachers be doing? How are students positioned as active and engaged self-assessors to monitor and guide their own learning? This workshop will explore classroom-based formative assessment techniques and tools (including virtual options!) which can be used to plan, implement, and reflect on both teaching and student learning in your classroom.
High school math teachers face continued pressure to raise ACT scores, which play a critical role in the assessment of both students and schools. This workshop offers an opportunity for teachers to take a closer look at the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (WI State Standards), including middle school standards, revealing critical connections.
Do you lead professional learning for your colleagues? Avoid common pitfalls and learn how to design interactive learning with this virtual workshop that values what educators know and brings new ideas to engage colleagues in learning while building on their expertise.
A three-week online course is designed to help you navigate how to head back to school in the fall, leveraging your strengths and the strengths of your students as you consider what mathematics instruction will look like, whether it’s face-to-face, remote, or hybrid. Throughout the course you will explore and analyze your current curricular materials to plan instruction that keeps grade-level learning as a top priority and focuses on moving students forward, using equitable instructional practices to make sure that all learners have opportunities for success.
While we can’t control what school looks like, we know we are flexible, resilient, and willing to face challenges head-on to do what we can to support students.
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.
