- the concepts of congruence, similarity, and symmetry from the perspective of transformations
- the development of transformations in algebra, functions, and geometry for grades 7-11
- formative assessment pedagogy: strategies for assessment for learning in geometry

- inquiry-based learning environments with rich mathematical tasks
- collaborative conversations and networking
Meet our Facilitators
AJ and Jason have worked together for many years on various projects to improve learning and teaching mathematics. AJ’s research focuses on the implementation of problem-centered, inquiry-oriented curriculum materials at the middle and high school grades, including the Core-Plus Mathematics Project and the Connected Mathematics Project. Jason works with schools in West Michigan providing professional learning for teachers, including the teaching and learning of geometry. He currently serves as a regional director on the board of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics, a leadership organization in mathematics education.
