NSDL Online Teacher Workshops

The Math Forum is hosting a series of online workshops for teachers who work with students in 5th through 9th grade.

Teachers are exploring how technology can help students build algebraic reasoning as they model and solve contextualized problems using a variety of representations, including graphs, tables, equations, and words.

The workshop fees are being covered by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, and afford participants the convenience of anytime, anywhere online learning. There are a limited number of openings for the three upcoming six-week workshops.

Workshop 3: April 1 - May 12
Workshop 4: May 13 - June 23
Workshop 5: June 24 - August 4
