Teacher Workshop Schedule


Our mission is to support educators in their quest to provide quality instruction to elementary, middle, and high school mathematics students. Our intent is to provide experiences to deepen mathematical understandings and to supply lessons that could be implemented in K-12 classrooms.

Spring 2018 Workshops

Data Literacy: Making Sense of Data for Math and Social Studies Teachers
February 7 and March 7 (2-night series)
UA Gould Simpson Building, Room 849
5:30 – 7:30 p.m. (Dinner will be served at 5PM)

As society becomes more steeped in “big data”, do you and your students feel a sense of information overload? Do you want to bring data into the classroom that both you and your students would find relevant? You can use data in your classroom to help students discern the truth and dispel the myths! Both math and social studies teachers use data but often approach it from different angles (‘punintentional’). Math teachers may have students analyze real-world datasets so students learn the power of statistics to inform real-life decision-making. Social science teachers may want to push students to critically examine datasets used in political or economic decision-making from a quantitative perspective. We hope you will join us to see how these angles are truly complementary! On February and March 7, the CRR, in cooperation with the Thomas R. Brown Foundation, will present a two-part series on statistical literacy, using datasets applicable to economics, U.S. Government, and other social science courses. The workshop will be comprised of approximately 50 percent each math and social science teachers, so you are guaranteed kindred spirits whichever subject you teach. This workshop will examine:

  • How data can spur us to ask questions
  • Data has underlying assumptions and definitions
  • Questions we should ask about a dataset/ becoming a data skeptic
  • The strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of a given dataset

Between the two sessions, you will use data with your students so that you may report back at the second session. We will provide excellent instruction from a PhD mathematician and real-world data analyst, and you will leave this series better equipped to use data with your students. In addition, we will feed you dinner and provide certificates for professional development hours.

Fall 2018 Workshops


We are currently planning our workshop schedule for the 2018-2019 school year. 
If you have topics you would like to see featured in these workshops, please let us know. These are topics we are planning at this time.

The Arizona Association of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Conference will take place Saturday September 28, 2019 at Arizona State University Memorial Union. Registration will be posted at their website this summer.

Are you an NCTM Member?  The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) now offers free webinars for their members. Visit their website for available events.

 

CRR Workshops

Space for each workshop is limited. You are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Priority is given to teachers from partnership schools and districts (see list below). Teachers from schools that are not in our partnership will need to pay a fee to attend workshops. 
If you have questions about the workshops, or if you have trouble using the registration forms, please contact Rodrigo Gutiérrez.
