Leveraging the Power of Technology in Inquiry Based Learning
Technology and inquiry based learning are not mutually exclusive! Students come to school with mathematical ideas about numbers, shapes, measurements, patterns, and data. Learn how technologies in Investigations 3 and the Pearson System of Courses can be applied to support students as they build on those ideas.

Defining a Model Mathematics Classroom in Physical and Virtual Schools
Best instructional practice for teaching and learning has focused on teacher and student behaviors observable in classrooms. Math Solutions has worked to define the model mathematics classroom, capturing these behaviors in our Instructional Practices Inventory. This session will explore the model virtual classroom based on what we know about face-to-face teaching and learning. First 20 participants will receive Faster Isn’t Smarter, Messages about Math, Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century, 2nd Edition, by Cathy L. Seeley.

Finally! A Coaching Framework That's Actually About the Mathematics
Looking to improve feedback for mathematics teachers? Experience the power of the Mathematical Quality of Instruction (MQI) instrument in focusing discussions of mathematics instruction and guiding teachers’ growth. The MQI is a CCSSM-aligned, mathematics-specific rubric from Harvard University. Learn how our MQI video-based, virtual coaching helps teachers improve.

From Standards to Practice: Leading Teachers to Improve Student Understanding Through Formative Assessment
How do you lead teachers to think beyond today’s lesson plan and connect to the learning goals for their students? We’ll discuss how to monitor and respond to student feedback in order to move toward those goals. Learn valuable tips for integrating teaching practices, questioning strategies and technology into your own training with teachers.
