Workshop and Events 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. Many of our workshops are listed on IMPACTS and HEMS program tabs above. Additional workshops and events are listed below.

We are regularly revising our workshop topics and schedule. If you have topics you would like to see featured in these workshops, please let us know.

October

Oct 20, 2020: Interactive Slides for Teaching Mathematic in Hybrid or Remote Settings Part 1  
Want to get your students to more actively participate in math class? With interactive apps you can "see" if they are interacting meaningfully without forcing them to be in the spotlight. Learn how to use the free Nearpod Add-on to Google slides to create interactive slide-decks with video, imagery, virtual corkboards, matching games, and fill-in-the-blanks to do informal formative assessments in real-time. The sessions will be structured so that you can experience a slide deck as a student would, create your own short deck during our time together, and practice  going through it with other participants. Bring your questions about other tools you have heard about to the first session, and I will look into them for the second session where we can look at apps like Kahoot! and Mentimeter. Come away with something you can use in your math class.
 **Please only register if you can attend both sessions

Date:             Tuesday October 20th, 2020 
Time:            4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
