Our institutes help educators intellectualize the fundamentals of teaching and learning mathematics.
Instructed within the framework of NCTM’s Standards for Mathematical Practices, our interactive sessions empower teachers with the necessary strategies, resources and classroom practices to immediately impact student learning.
The curriculum of the workshops covers these topics:
- The Essential Ideas in Teaching Mathematics
- Components of an Effective Lesson
- Build learning progression to ensure foundational concepts are secure
- Move students from frustration to success with effective differentiation techniques
- Put problem solving at the heart of every mathematic lesson
- Learn and implement efficient strategies to solving problems
- Optimize assessment opportunities with effective questioning techniques
Since 2007, Sarah has held teacher, student, and parent workshops around the globe. Since the pandemic, she and her team have provided hundreds of hours of support to teachers, students, and parents through virtual workshops, webinars, and recorded videos. Her 20 years of teaching mathematics in K-12 classrooms along with her extensive teacher training and most recent authorship of both the think!Mathematics and Developing Roots places Sarah as a leader in the field.
Yeap Ban Har, Ph.D., was a faculty member at the National Institute of Education Singapore at Nanyang Technological University. Since then he has held concurrent positions as principal of a teacher professional development institute, director of curriculum and professional development at the Pathlight School in Singapore and the Anglo Singapore International School in Thailand. His research interests include problem posing and solving, challenging all students, and teacher professional development.
*Please note Dr. Yeap Ban Har will be delivering the Bar Model portion of the training session virtually and will not be in person.
Sarah Schaefer's work has been transformational for our Lower School at Lovett. She is an educator of rare form, who demonstrated such depth of mathematical knowledge and understanding as well as children and adults as learners. Our entire community - of administrators, teachers, and parents - has been in awe of her intelligence, critical thinking, humility, and humor. At ease with every age of child and every type of learner, our teachers were eager to learn from and with Sarah. They continuously clamored for more time with her and named their professional development with Sarah as the most powerful of the year. No other consultant, workshop, or conference has had such a profound effect on how we teach math. Sarah's work and presence have truly been invaluable!
