Math Professional Development
Over 270 professional development programs have been offered in the past seven years. These workshops will help any teacher walk away with effective strategies to use in their classroom. These workshops can be arranged at your location or at one of our offices.
Recent programs include a focus on the new Common Core State Standards in Mathematics.
Developing Math Sense – Focus on Number Sense and Operations
Pre K - 2nd Grades
Ready or not the Common Core is coming. Engage in a variety of games and activities that focus on different skills while exploring Common Core concepts more deeply. Leave with dozens of practical ideas that you can use with your students.
Fear Not The Core
Math games provide an opportunity to engage students and differentiate learning. We will explore games that focus on the Common Core standards for upper elementary students. Leave with loads of practical ideas and materials that you can use with your students.
Getting Serious About Games - Focus on Common Core for Middle School
Play and evaluate a variety of math games while exploring ways to implement Common Core Standards. Leave with a collection of materials that you can use with your students.
Other programs to meet classroom needs:
Number Sense and More
Come and share in the fun – we will partake in a variety of games and activities that can be used to build problem solving strategies as well as basic skills.
Let's explore some geometry concepts through a wide variety of activities and games.
Strategies, games and activities will be practiced to help your students improve their estimation and measurement skills.
What are the Chances?
Here is your chance to make some sense out of statistics and probability. Learn some fun ways to engage your students as we try a variety of games and activities.
Let the Games Begin
Who said learning can't be fun? These programs focus on small and large group games to enhance your classroom instruction. Each session focuses on different skills and age groups.
· Focus on Counting, Addition and Subtraction (K-3)
· Focus on Multiplication and Division (3-6)
· Focus on Fractions, Decimals, Percent, and Algebra (5-8)
Classroom - All Science Areas
This is an interdisciplinary program encompassing all major science subjects commonly use in the investigation and in solving crime issues. It is the interplay of all sciences and mathematics in the crime scene investigation process.
Student Enrichment – Mathematics
Not Math Problems …Math PUZZLES! – Grades 3-8
