Mathematics Leadership Teams
The Mathematics Leadership Team focus during the past three years was very strategic - a deep understanding of the Common Core, creating quality math units/lessons, and experiencing research-based strategies for improving classroom instruction. We will continue this work into the upcoming school year. At each meeting, we focus on a different math domain/conceptual category from the Common Core.
Our Team Purpose: The Mathematics Leadership Team will participate in research-informed professional development experiences with the purpose of sustaining improved mathematics achievement.
The meetings will provide networking opportunities for members who serve as representative of their district.
