We have three amazing (synchronous but virtual) secondary mathematics professional learning opportunities throughout the next school year. More information, including the registration forms, can be found at the link below. Look for the purple box.
- Number Talks Institute (1.0 Credit Hour Commitment) – Authors Cathy Humphries and Ruth Parker of the Making Number Talks Matter book study will host a state-wide Number Talks Institute specifically aimed towards Secondary Mathematics Teachers. Number Talks in the Secondary Mathematics environment are a wonderful way to reinforce/build numerical flexibility and multiple representations, provide a structure to make student-lead academic discourse a classroom routine, and to build student mathematical identities.
- Mathematical Modeling for Engaged Citizenship facilitated by Dr Brenden Kelly of Harvard University (1.0 Credit Hour Commitment) – Mathematical Modeling has been in the Utah Secondary Mathematics Standards for years but what does it mean and how do we implement?
- Secondary Mathematics Leadership Institute (1.0 – 3.0 Credit Hour Commitment based on participant choice). The Secondary Mathematics Leadership Institute is back (after taking a sabbatical last year) and open for registration. I hope you will consider participating with us as we learn from these three teams of Utah Secondary Mathematics leaders:
- Understanding Distress in Mathematics Teaching and Learning and Developing Interventions facilitated by Dr. Rachel Bachman, Weber State University and Amy Henderson, LCSW
- Diverse & Equitable Responses for Secondary Students facilitated by Dr. Mario Suarez, Utah State University
- Leveraging Asset Based Strategies to Build Procedural Fluency from Conceptual Understanding facilitated by Dr. C. David Walters, Weber State University
We will meet virtually but synchronously approximately every two weeks starting on the evening of August 26th times vary by topic. Check the registration form for more information. Each topic represents 1.0 credit hours of workload and gives you the opportunity to collaborate and build professional relationships with other Secondary Mathematics leaders from across the state.
