The learning in this PD will be focused on building the capacity of elementary and secondary teachers to help students fully master the sequence of numeracy. We will learn about and practice strategies to use mathematical discourse through number talks and/or problem strings during warm-ups. This learning will be supported throughout the year during two half-day sessions in November and April, as well using video reflection during team meetings.

Third part of three part series (August/November/March).
