Participants will investigate shifts in planning, instructing, and assessing, to focus on deeper content-based instruction. Create a shared image of successful classrooms, and generate a plan for targeted professional improvement in mathematics teaching.

Your Goal

Deepening Your Expertise

Two‑Four Day Services

Content Institutes

Make sense of mathematics for teaching in an intensive and collaborative setting. In this institute, teachers will become the learners of the mathematics that they teach. Gain instructional strategies modeled by an expert with a definite focus on grade-specific mathematical content.

Implementation Workshops

Learn how content-based strategies transform teaching and advance learning. Participants will apply deep understanding of mathematics content to create end-of-unit assessments, engage students in high-cognitive-demand tasks, assess student work, and implement productive homework plans.

Your Goal

Sustaining Your Expertise

Multi‑Day Services

Coaching and In-School Support

Strengthen practices and processes with just-in-time, in-class support. Participants will observe model teaching, engage in collaborative planning, and receive guidance during teacher observations and evaluations to move mathematics instruction forward.

Customized Services

Tell us your goals and challenges, and we'll develop a customized learning plan specially designed to support teachers of mathematics. Our experts—who are available for both on-site professional development and virtual training—will first help teachers deepen their understanding of K–12 mathematics content and then effectively teach the content with focus, coherence, and rigor.
