Face to Face Workshop Option:
This workshop has a content focus on quadratic functions and a pedagogical focus on the implementation of instructional routines that promote mathematical reasoning and student discourse. Teachers will explore quadratic functions through rich tasks, and they will have the opportunity to experience, analyze, and learn to implement productive instructional routines and strategies that they can incorporate into their mathematics lessons and units.
Each district will have funding through apportionment to cover costs for teachers to participate in this professional development. Allowable use of funds includes:
June 6th and 7th: Ellensburg High School from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Session Number 113104
June 13th: ESD 105 from 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Session Number 113083

You have up to June 24th to complete the course. Once you have completed the course you will get a certification of completion for verification of the course.
Course open from May 11th through June 24th.
Expressions and Equations is the third course developed in partnership through a Math and Science Partnership Grant in collaboration with Ruth Parker's team from MEC. In this four day series participants will...
*Learn how to support a range of student needs from struggling students toadvanced learners — without labeling students.
*Live and learn mathematics within an environment that fully models the Standards for Mathematical Practice, which are central to successful
implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
*Deepen your own mathematical understanding while learning how to support students as powerful users of mathematics.
Date: June 13th-June 16th
Location: Washington Middle School: Yakima School District
Instructors: Dawn Sparks - Tanya Randolf - Collette Heffner
Fee: $125.00 Per Participant for Entire Four Day Series
Session Number: 113259
Developing Conceptual Understanding with Connections with Washington Learning Standards and English Language Proficiency Standards
Teachers will solve challenging and engaging problems both collaboratively and as independent problem solvers. They engage with colleagues in professional discussions of mathematics, instructional practice, the Common Core State Standards, classroom culture and other relevant issues.
