We recognize that teachers are lifelong learners. To help their students succeed, they continuously seek to augment their toolbox of skills. According to a study commissioned by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, the ideal professional development experience should possess a variety of attributes in order to be successfully implemented in day-to-day teaching. Professional development should be relevant, interactive, delivered by someone who understands the teacher experience, and most importantly sustained over time.
We are extremely happy to announce our partnership with Dr. Marian Small. Through this partnership, Dr. Small has created a number of exclusive videos to demonstrate how to use her Rich Tasks contained in Mathletics. The videos are self-paced, highly engaging and informative; delivered through Marian’s unique, unforgettable style! They are intended for your professional development, ready to use at your convenience. Topics include developing multiplicative thinking in elementary students and detailed lesson plans, which provide the opportunity for continuous implementation. They can be found with the Interactive Activities in the eBook section of Mathletics.
