About This Academy

Teaching for Mathematical Depth

The Common Core Math Standards require students to demonstrate a blend of skills, conceptual understandings, and problem solving, and require teachers to integrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice into classroom instruction. Teaching and Assessing Common Core Math in a Digital World will help you make sense of the Standards for Mathematical Practice and their successful implementation in the K-12 math classroom. Strengthen your core with resources, tools, and assessments, leveraging digital media and technology, to help your students reach higher levels of math achievement.

This professional development provides:

  • Deep understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Practice and their successful implementation in the K-12 math classroom.
  • Assessment strategies to support the development of mathematically proficient students in preparation for college and career expectations.
  • Integration and effective use of digital tools and resources into math instruction and assessments to build students' mathematical literacy skills.
