It is an institute, not a workshop, where teachers are taught how to teach math, learning the concrete-pictorial-abstract approach to teaching mathematical concepts. All instructors are current educators implementing these strategies in classrooms.
Why the [M4th]odology Institute?
It provides the structure to develop a math curriculum based on number sense. To support this methodology, we have developed both intensive two-day and 3-day institutes that teach sound pedagogical strategies to use in the classroom. Our institutes build the conceptual knowledge behind every mathematical computation so teachers leave understanding the whys and hows behind the mathematics. Using techniques found in Singapore, a new appreciation for number understanding is experienced.
