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.

Spring 2020 Workshops and Events
March 4, 2020: Pre-Pi Day at UA CRR
- Teachers, students, mentors, and families will play games, do puzzles, and explore mathematics concepts around circles and pi.
Children love counting, especially when it is counting items they recognize. How can we leverage this joy to help students put-together, count all, count on, and compare? Come and explore the ways we can use counting collections for number play. Participants will receive a file of various counting collections images.
How can solving super fun puzzles help students think algebraically? Come and explore the hidden aspects of these puzzles and see the treasures within them. We will puzzle together and then analyze our puzzling to uncover the BIG IDEAS of algebraic thinking within them.
Math games have been around since the beginning of time. Come and experience some of these games, and their related stories. Discover how these games support flexible thinking, and enjoy some key mathematics concepts.
Children love playing games, and games are an excellent way to build flexibility and fluency, while reinforcing key understandings. We will use games that require few materials but provide lots of fun!
K-5 families and teachers are working hard to provide quality math time to students. We want to help. Come join us as we share Math Menus for students K-5. We have made THREE WEEKS of options in English and SPANISH for children that support big ideas in mathematics and require no technology. These menus will leverage children’s desire to have fun and explore while at home. Parents, teachers, and others are invited. More menus will be included for as long as we remain home.
