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.
