Beyond Math Blocks Teacher Institute


At last, an opportunity for teachers to re-invigorate their practice!

While focusing on the most critical K-5 math content for number and operations, the two-day Beyond Math Blocks Teacher Institute will inspire and empower teachers with new ways of learning, new ways of thinking, and new ways of teaching. They will come away with a comprehensive set of ideas, tools, and strategies contained in Ten-Frame Mathematics, a powerful re-envisioning of base ten content.
