Thank you to Carren Walker of Collaborative for Ambitious Mathematics for her fabulous webinar yesterday!
“Transforming the Classroom through the Standards for Mathematical Practice” presents online resources to support teachers who seek to change both content and pedagogy in their courses, with a focus on active learning, formative assessment, and specific examples of tasks and approaches.
