Saturday Math in the 2015-2016 school year will focus on three essential aspects for excellent math teaching and learning: building teacher content knowledge around big math ideas, the cognitive demand of tasks and questioning, and purposeful planning. When we delve deeply into reflecting on and refining these areas of our practice we can support our students’ growth as thinkers, problem solvers, collaborators, and inquirers.

- Saturday Math 2015-2016 Overview
For those who teach...
Sponsored by the Leadership in Mathematics program, four Saturday morning sessions a year are held on topics relevant to all who teach and learn mathematics. Teachers and administrators from the tri-state area meet for coffee, bagels and a facilitated session on a selected topic in the teaching of mathematics.
The sessions consist of activities and discussion and often provide resource materials. There is ample opportunity to share ideas and concerns with other professionals. Topics may be curriculum specific ("Making the Fraction, Decimal & Percent connection") or instruction specific ("Teaching Mathematics in the Inclusion Classroom").
