  • This year-long, in-depth course provides teachers with information and materials to enable them to strengthen mathematics instruction by building from students’ current funds of knowledge.
  • Participants will learn teaching strategies for helping students develop the more sophisticated reasoning needed for middle grades mathematics with the goal of improving student access to grade-level content.
  • Each participant will receive two sets of the "24 Game: Fractions/Decimals" card game  
  • Each participant will also receive 4 books:
    • Figuring out Fluency in Mathematics Teaching and Learning 
    • Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Teaching Developmentally, 10th edition
