Designed to fundamentally change the way teachers think about math and how they teach their students, this relevant, engaging, 4-or 5-day institute brings Mathematical Habits of Mind to life. Through hands-on, research-based activities, teachers deepen their own content knowledge while learning how to develop students’ number sense, computation, and problem-solving skills, as well as their abilities to think and reason.
This full-day course refines participants’ vision for their role as instructional leaders of mathematics. Participants increase their understanding of and ability to communicate about current state standards. They engage in mathematical tasks and discover the use of tools and structures to lead stakeholders toward effective mathematics teaching and learning.
