MathAction believes that the process of learning is dynamic and nuanced – it takes time to learn, practice, integrate, and adapt new approaches in the classroom.
Many middle and high school educators ask us where they can purchase our high-quality instructional materials...
Our response: In our professional learning sessions, we share our approach and pedagogy, and teach you how to create your own math investigations - first by implementing MathAction classroom-tested ones, and then by supporting you to create your own. The combination of high-quality instructional materials and professional support provides the best return on investment (ROI) for deeper, lasting learning.
If you want to try out our approach, we suggest you begin with a MathAction workshop and see how we can best support you as a learning partner. We are confident that you will have a wonderful, engaging, learning experience!
Over the years, we have developed professional learning programs that support educators in variety of combinations, including:
Hands-on Workshops - Immerse yourself and learn experientially. We incorporate conceptual models and grounded experiences, incorporating student assessment throughout the process.
Teacher Communities of Practice - Many of us learn better together. We support communities of teachers from a variety of schools who work closely to implement MathAction in their classrooms.
Coaching - We support math team leaders, math teachers, district math specialists and individual math teachers striving to boost both student engagement and achievement.
Webinars - We provide virtual opportunities to learn our approach and help prepare educators to implement global project-based math units.
School/District Consultation - Not sure of your next steps? We audit your current program, recommend improvements, and support implementation, including alignment to Common Core using a blended learning approach that includes inquiry-based learning projects and integrated math units.
