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 at The AT&T Center at The University of Texas and involves teachers in 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 teachers' understandings of the complex practices in a number lab classroom.
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.
Apply to be a Partner School.
the number lab works with a select group of schools on a more intensive basis, extending the Educators' Collaboratory summer experience into the school year.
Partner Schools have a one or two year relationship with us. With this relationship comes a steady flow of pd opportunities in the form of Field Study Days, Planning Workshops, and Coaching Sessions.
