Professional Development

Make math the best part of your day.

Transitioning to Common Core? We do that. With special focus on the role the Standards for Mathematical Practice play in the classroom, why they matter, and teaching practices that support them, we can help your school turn the transition to Common Core into a chance to revolutionize your math teaching.

Developing new curriculum? We do that. We can help your math department or entire school hone its math mission and create or modify a curriculum to take your students to new places.

Workshops to energize your math program? We do that. Our workshops offer a vision of rich content, effective pedagogy, and the authentic beauty of mathematics. Give your teachers and administrators new confidence and a belief in the possibilities of mathematics education.

We believe in the ability of every student and the potential of every teacher. We love math. We want to help your school love math too.
