Math In Practice: Starting School Soon?


As you start preparing to launch a new school year, join author Sue O’Connell and thousands of educators for a slow chat about important questions in elementary math teaching.

Join the Math in Practice Facebook Group!

MIP_BTSchat_InviteStarting August 10, Sue will post a question a week on the Math in Practice Facebook group. Hop on at any point to add your thinking or read what others are saying; it’s professional learning on your schedule. Topics will include:

  • Helping students connect math with their lives
  • Using models to make sense of math concepts
  • Using math journals and other tools to support talk

The chat will run for five weeks with the goal of inspiring some new ideas as you head back to your classroom. You can learn more about how Math in Practice supports any curriculum or program you use at MathInPractice.com
