Meaningful Mathematics for All: The Why, the What, and the How

  • 1Day WorkshopMeaningful Mathematics for All: The Why, the What, and the How

    One-Day Workshop • November 8, 2019

    Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Marriott • Registration fee: $250

    Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics charges all of us involved in education to recognize and address the inequities in the way mathematics programs, particularly in middle and high schools, are structured and enacted in way too many schools and districts. Join us with other educational leaders to discuss key elements in successful detracking and the difference between tracking and acceleration. We will consider key elements in beginning the process of changing the status quo and provide examples from a real context where these changes were successfully implemented.
