Workshop and Events Schedule

The CRR supports educators in their quest to provide quality instruction to elementary, middle, and high school mathematics students. The Center's intent is to provide experiences to deepen mathematical understandings and to supply lessons that could be implemented in K-12 classrooms. Workshops and Events are listed below. Further program and workshop details are listed on IMPACTS and HEMS program tabs above.

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.

For the 2021-2022 school year, CRR events are FREE for ALL Arizona teachers!


Getting REAL Program

ReEngaging Aspirational Learners (Getting REAL). The CRR will provide schools with program materials and training to re-engage these learners in exciting mathematics experiences while meeting their basic needs and intentionally developing connections to fully engage these aspirational learners in their education community.

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.
  • Presenters:   Brie Finegold
