Presenter: Dorothy White, Mathematics & Science Education

 

Building a mathematics education requires the time and commitment of teachers, paraprofessional, administrators, university educators/partners, and students. Project SIPS (Support and Ideas for Planning and Sharing in Mathematics Education) was a three-year school-based professional development project designed to help teachers improve the quality of their mathematics instruction by building a mathematics education community within their school. In this presentation Dr. White will share some of the challenges and triumphs in implementing and sustaining such an initiative with particular attention to needs of diverse student learners.
