Math Institute: Constructing Mathematical Minds

Through this PD series, participants will gain knowledge in building an environment that nurtures a mathematical mindset. We will combine the deep understanding in the research behind developing a mind for math and specific strategies to target this type of nurturing. We will embed topics such as co-teaching models, inquiry mindsets, using data to guide instruction, fostering productive struggle, talk moves and more as they relate to the four mathematical mindsets.  Where applicable, we will embed specific technology tools to use for math. Through this series, participants will follow a cycle to learn, create a target focus for implementation, and then reflect, collaborate, and iterate their implementation.
