Designing "Math that Sticks"
Would you like to increase engagement, connections and retention of student’s mathematical understandings? If so, join our community of math teachers/learners as we examine and apply research based strategies focused on how to create magical math moments to address these challenges.
In each session we will....
- investigate effective math teaching practices
- examine inclusive lesson design
- experience cooperative learning strategies
- collaborate with peers
