About the course

While most people would agree that a solid education in math is important, let's face it folks, we have an image problem. Many of our students enter Math classrooms nervous, trepidatious, and even afraid. The Colleagues in Contact series brings together teachers from across the network of schools to share ideas, resources, curriculum and pedagogy. In this course teachers will work together to share and develop strategies to reduce the stress and fear our students often associate with Math. Areas of focus will include Classroom Design, Instructional Strategies, and Assessment Strategies. Teachers will complete the course having crafted a lesson, tool, or assessment designed to make the math experience a friendlier one for students.
