General Description of Instruction

Workshops are particularly suited for teachers that use Japanese and Singapore Math® textbooks. The content of these textbooks is mathematically focused, coherently organized, and rigorous. These textbooks are helpful to study, because they hold a key to the implementation of CCSS-M in classrooms.

Workshops consist of:

  • Interactive presentations using PowerPoint, SmartBoard and Whiteboard
  • Problem solving approach to instruction
  • Hands on activities
  • Discussion and Q&A
  • The length of each session is ½ day (1 session is about 3 hours)
