Make plans to join NCCAT for two exciting Math Professional Development programs in April and May. NCCAT's instructional programs reflect the broad range of unique professional development topics for public school teachers and other educators. Challenging formats, combined with professional learning communities, shape the NCCAT offerings. All programs incorporate state standards.
Empowering Mathematicians through Hands-On Learning April 11-14, in Ocracoke - How do we empower middle and high school mathematicians to flourish as they create meaning in mathematics? Join us as we explore the CRA (concrete-representational-abstract) model in the secondary math classroom, where educators learn how to empower students through hands-on opportunities. This program will explore Hands-On Equations and Algebra Tiles while examining the vertical progression of algebraic concepts. This program is designed for 5-12 math teachers focusing on linear equations, binomial multiplication, and factoring.
Making Learning Visible in High School Mathematics, May 15-19, in Ocracoke - Research indicates that every student can be successful in math with a combination of mindset and high effect size strategies. Join us as we explore strategies that make learning visible and engage high school students in rich mathematics. Sessions for this program will include mathematical discourse, the power of reflection, and authentic problem-solving. This program is open to math teachers in grades 8-12 with a focus on Math 1.
