Building Your Expertise

One‑Day Services

Keynote

An expert author or Mathematics at Work certified associate will educate and motivate your team to support high levels of mathematics teaching and learning.

Assessment Design Criteria and Intervention Routines

Participants will use the eight criteria for highly effective mathematics assessment design to reflect, refine, and act on the alignment of all current unit assessments, the scoring of those assessments, and the creation of an efficient and sustainable intervention process for formative student action on teacher feedback.

Lesson Design Criteria and Formative Feedback Task Routines

Participants will use the six lesson design criteria to reflect, refine, and act on levels of student perseverance and engagement during the lesson, the nature of the cognitive-demand tasks for those lessons, and a sustainable formative feedback process, with student action during the lesson.

Homework Criteria and Grading Routines

Participants will use the eight criteria for highly effective homework and grading design to reflect, refine, and act on all current homework assignments, the scoring of those assignments, and the creation of efficient and effective grading routines designed to inspire student perseverance, effort, and engagement in learning.
