Improving Mathematical Problem solving, Agency, & student-Centered instruction for K-8 Teachers and Students (IMPACTS K-8)

The IMPACTS program focuses on developing teacher confidence and capability with K-8 mathematics, while also supporting opportunities for teacher leadership.

The Program caters to teachers seeking to bring about the greatest change in students' mathematical experiences and improve student outcomes in mathematics. This includes classroom teachers, special education teachers, long term substitute teachers, coaches/interventionists, and others directly serving math learners.

IMPACTS Program Goals:

  • Improve teachers' professional agency and confidence with conceptual mathematics instruction
  • Improve students' mathematical agency and confidence
  • Increase the use of student-centered instructional strategies

The program consists of 5 components:

  • Teacher Workshops on Saturdays throughout the school year
  • Summer Mathematics Institutes for Teacher Teams engaged in site-based leadership
  • Site-based support for Teacher Teams by CRR staff
  • Teacher Leadership Retreat for teachers engaged in regional/district leadership
  • Mathematics Educator Appreciation Day Conference (MEAD)

During the school year, the CRR will offer workshops open to ALL Arizona teachers (see workshop descriptions below). These workshops introduce teachers to the big ideas of mathematics in grades K-5 and 6-8.

During the summer, the CRR will offer week-long institutes for teachers to who demonstrate productive mathematics dispositions, commitment to their schools, and the capacity to become school site mathematics facilitators. See Program Agreements for more details.

Information about the school year workshops will be advertised through the CRR listserv, so please make sure you are on the list.

For more information about the IMPACTS program or to form a Teacher Team, please contact Melissa Hosten (mhosten@math.arizona.edu) for K-5 or Rodrigo Gutiérrez (rodrigog@math.arizona.edu) for 6-8.


Upcoming IMPACTS K-8 Events

(Summer 2022)

Description: Teacher teams attend a one-week institute to deeply explore the progression of learning for elementary or middle school mathematics, working together to design site plans for professional development to share strategies and content with colleagues in their schools.

Summer institutes will be HYBRID with in-person and online participants.

If interested please complete the form below.

  • June 6th - 10th, 2022: IMPACTS 6-8
  • June 13th - 17th, 2022: IMPACTS K-5

Questions? Please contact Melissa Hosten (mhosten@math.arizona.edu) for K-5 or Rodrigo Gutiérrez (rodrigog@math.arizona.edu) for 6-8.

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.

Please Note: Teachers from out of Arizona may attend workshops, but they will incur a fee related to the number of hours for the workshop.
