Our highly skilled team will work with teachers to strengthen math teaching and learning. Options for teachers and teams: ▶▶ modeling instructional strategies and math routines that engage students in reasoning and sense-making ▶▶ lesson and unit planning ▶▶ looking at common assessments ▶▶ facilitating team conversations ▶▶ instructional coaching

One-on-One Coaching for Coaches Coaches work hard to build trusting relationships and support their colleagues, which limits who they are able to talk to about their work within the school setting. Our one-on-one coaching supports the success of coaches by connecting them with a math specialist to help them process, reflect, problem solve, and plan for working with adults.

Mathematics Instruction Needs Analysis Are you ready to effect change in your school or district’s mathematics program but not sure where to start? A mathematics instruction needs analysis lets us help you figure out where to begin. Work with Math Institute mathematics specialists to identify the current state of your school or district math instruction, and then discuss strategic steps to transform it moving forward. The needs analysis starts with observation of mathematical instruction and is followed by a comprehensive report that includes observations and areas identified for improvement with professional development recommendations.

High-Quality Instructional Materials Teachers deserve high-quality instructional materials so they can “focus their time, energy, and creativity on bringing lessons to life and finding ways to inspire their students to learn and grow” (Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, 2019). The Math Institute’s team of mathematics specialists can help your organization work through a process to: select materials that lead to improved student outcomes; prepare to roll out new materials in a manageable way; and plan for successful implementation with the materials.

Using Mathematical Representations to Develop the Concept of Linearity

Grade Level: 6-12 Domains: Ratios and Proportional Relationships,

In an increasingly data-driven world, statistical literacy is becoming an essential skill for all informed citizens. Statistics and Probability is often a domain/ conceptual category that gets pushed to the end of the year and sometimes skipped altogether. Teachers need support in understanding the inferential thinking that begins in the middle school standards and continues into high school. The statistical problem-solving process provides a framework for these standards, stressing hands-on activite learning through four steps: 1) formulating a statistical question that can be answered with data, 2) designing a plan to collect appropriate data, 3) analyzing the collected data by graphical and numerical methods, and 4) interpreting the analysis with respect to the original question. With a focus on using data to create mathematical models and make predictions, the content is closely connected to the conceptual category Modeling (HS), as well as Standard for Mathematical Practice 4: Model with mathematics (K-12).
