Grades 3-5
Tools for Building Math Concepts
This workshop sponsored by Microsoft Corporation introduces the use of computers to develop understanding in these areas through the exploration of patterns and analysis of data.
Grades 5-9
Using Technology and Problem Solving to Build Algebraic Reasoning
Explore 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. Engaging, open-construct problems provide opportunities for students to explain their reasoning and processes.
      Register We will begin accepting applications on December 24 for our next workshop.
