What math can you do with students from varying math backgrounds who have a wide range of test scores? Help your students develop reasoning and thinking habits, practice and build language skills, and build community by regularly using short numeracy activities in your instruction.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Teachers at all levels of math ability and comfort

In this 75-minute workshop, you will work through two different types of numeracy routines yourself as a learner. By observing how the facilitator connects sample content to numeracy skills, you will learn instructional strategies you can use in your own classroom that can help you capitalize on students' natural curiosities. Opportunities to connect material to adult numeracy can arise in any academic class!

Please note: Registrants will receive a separate email from Sherry Soares from the SABES Math team at TERC with instructions on how to access the Zoom session. 

    Learning Objectives
