Transform your math instruction.
We know two things: Teaching math is hard work. And good mathematics teaching makes an enormous difference.
So how do we grow our mathematics practice? the number lab offers a progressive professional development model that opens teachers up to possibilities and invites them to adopt and refine new practices in a lab setting.
Attend our Educators' Collaboratory.
Our Educators' Collaboratory is a summer workshop held in Austin, Texas for K-8 math teachers, coaches, and administrators. The Educators' Collaboratory is an intensive 4-day experience that provides an introduction to the mathematical big ideas that promote Number Reasoning. The Advanced Collaboratory (for past participants) deepens understandings of the complex practices in a number lab classroom by focusing on planning and practice.
Sign up for a Field Study Day.
Field Study Days (fall, winter, and spring) at our micro-school support teachers as they work to shift to new practices that scaffold deeper conceptual development. Field Study Days offer a unique opportunity to take part in a classroom experience, study student thinking, and reflect with colleagues.
Contact us to create a on-site workshop @your school.
We travel internationally and within the US to innovative schools interested in two or three day workshops. We prioritize schools that have taken part in the Educators' Collaboratory or Advanced Collaboaratory and thus have a group of leaders who can take a role in facilitating change and supporting colleagues across the year.
