Book Study Registration

All USBE Secondary Math Professional Learning Opportunities are:
Self-Paced (deadline is August 30, 2021)
Take between 7-14 hours to complete

What your peers are saying about the books:

"Before I read this book, I thought that some students had a natural ability that let things come easier to them than others because of my own experiences and because of the differences in success I see in the students in my classroom. Now that I've read this book, I think that student's success is shaped by their experiences and can be improved through the way we present our material to students.  Multidimensional lessons, open-ended discovery tasks and activities that encourage/teach flexibility of thinking about numbers allow all students to have access to their potential in math learning."
