Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Come experience how to take a PARCC, Smarter Balanced or text-book problem and turn the problem inside out so students are asking the questions and seeing the real-life application of the math!

Participants will learn a powerful new strategy that 1) provides experiences for students to bring their math understanding to real situations, 2) gives many ways for students to be right in the math classroom, 3) builds positive disposition and adaptive reasoning in their students, and 4) builds a high-ceiling, low-floor task so all students have an entry point. Instead of answering someone else's questions, students learn that math in the real world involves asking your own questions, applying what you know and communicating your thinking to others.
