A Different Approach to Instruction

Foundations of Math is a research-based training course for K-12 educators. The course is designed to develop educators' knowledge of mathematics by seeing it through the lens of a well-delineated number sense.

The Eastern Upper Peninsula Intermediate School District is pleased to offer the Foundations of Math course, developed in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction where participants will:

  • build deep foundational content and pedagogical knowledge
  • learn how to make solid instructional choices that positively impact students
  • connect procedures used in mathematics to conceptual understanding
  • build mathematical understanding and accurately assess learning for a range of learners
