Contexts for Learning Math: Hear Cathy Fosnot speak near you

Contexts for Learning Mathematics (CFLM) is a rigorous K–6 classroom resource that makes use of a workshop environment to bring the Standards for Mathematical Practice to life. Each unit uses a rich, authentic context to promote thinking and learning.

  • February 24 – Laguna Beach, CA

  • July 10-11 – New London, CT

  • July 12-13 – New London, CT
