Join a fun, game-based workshop that focuses on solidifying key skills critical to success in algebra.  Teachers will learn a variety of games that can be applied immediately in their classrooms.  Topics will be driven by attendees, but have included (in the past) - percents, whole numbers, fractions, and decimal operations, and non-trivial word problems. 


We will use research-based methods that focus on growth mindset, grit, visualizing thinking, and other best practices to help build math understanding.  Focus of topic discussion will be for grades 3 to 5.  

AIMS Members: $30 (through October 9th) or $40 (After October 9th)
NON AIMS Members: $60 (through October 9th) or $70 (After October 9th)


Please note that NO REFUNDS will be issued for cancellations for this class after October 13th
