A Focus on Grade 8/Algebra I with CMP3


A Focus on Grade 8/Algebra I with CMP

CMP Virtual Professional Learning

August 5, August 19, & October 27, 2021


Join us on August 5, August 19 & October 27, 2021, for 3 days of professional learning that will focus on teaching and learning using CMP. 

Sessions will include discussions around:

  • The CMP philosophy of teaching and learning with a problem-based curriculum
  • An overview of mathematics in my grade
  • The development of mathematics in Units Thinking with Mathematical Models and Looking for Pythagoras.
  • The student's mathematical experience
  • The extensive teacher support resources

Considerations will include how to maintain an equitable environment as we support students' mathematical learning with attention to students as problem solvers, creators of mathematics, communicators, and collaborators. 

During registration, participants can submit questions to be addressed in the sessions.

Together we can combine our unique talents and strengths to provide engaging mathematical environments for our students.
