June 8-9: Getting Students to Thinking Mathematically - It Isn't Just a Dream (5-8)
Cost: $125.00 - Participants will receive two books and lunch is provided.
This session will focus on mathematical reasoning as an evolving process of conjecturing, generalizing, investigating why, and developing and evaluating arguments. It is organized around one big idea - Mathematical Reasoning, supported by smaller interconnected ideas.   
June 27: Integrating Math and Science for ACT Aspire (K-6)
Cost: $150.00 - Lunch will be provided
What practices can be used in the science and math classrooms, which will allow students to have a greater understanding for math and science standards? Join us for a day of hands-on approach, implementation of standards, and putting it to use for preparation of the ACT Aspire Assessments. 
June 28: Integration of Math and Science with the ACT Aspire Assessment (7-12)
Cost: $150.00 - Lunch will be provided
What practices can be used in the science and math classrooms, which will allow students to have a greater understanding for math and science standards? Join us for a day of hands-on approach, implementation of standards, and putting it to use for preparation of the ACT Aspire Assessments.
July 6-7: Developing Proportional Reasoning (Blended Learning PD) (4-7)
Cost: $125.00 - Lunch will be provided. This session consists of 2 face-to-face days and follow-up activities through Moodle for a total of 24 PD hours.
This session will investigate the development of proportional reasoning concepts and skills beginning with multiplicative comparison and relating measurement units in grade 4 to using proportional relationships to solve multi-step problems in grade 7.
July 18: Engaging Middle School Students through Technology and Manipulatives (6-8)
Cost: $75.00 - Lunch will be provided
Are you looking for ways to keep your students effectively engaged? We will explore easy-to-use, free technology that can be incorporated into daily classroom activities; along with some engaging, hands-on lessons utilizing manipulatives.
July 19-20: Integrating Math and Computer Science in Grades K-5
Cost: $200.00 - Lunch will be provided
Participants will be given the opportunity to explore the new AR K-5 Computer Science standards and determine how they relate to the AR K-5 Math Standards. Participants will engage in lesson building activities that embed the computer science standards at their grade level.
