- Number Sense
- Conceptual Strategies for Addition
- Conceptual Strategies for Subtraction
- Conceptual Strategies for Multiplication
- Conceptual Strategies for Division
- Fraction Sense
- Geometry in the Elementary Grades
- Mathematical Practices: Structure and Modeling

Summer K-5 Institute
20 teacher teams attend a one-week institute to deeply explore elementary mathematics and to design site plans for professional development to share strategies and content with colleagues in their schools.
Teacher Leadership Retreat
A two-day leadership retreat will be offered to no more than eight teachers who have demonstrated strong professional growth and a desire to become regional mathematics facilitators. The content and pedagogy focus will prepare them to provide regional professional development workshops throughout the school year.
Mathematics Educator Appreciation Day (MEAD) Conference
The teacher teams and teacher leaders will present sessions at the MEAD conference.
The IMPACTS program is made possible by the generosity of the Thomas R. Brown Family Foundation. The Thomas R. Brown Foundations are a legacy of Thomas R. Brown, and the company he built in Tucson, Arizona, Burr-Brown Corporation.
CRR and the many teachers served by The IMPACTS Program are very grateful for the investment made by the Thomas R. Brown Family Foundation.
