The goal(s) of this workshop are to introduce CMP3 content to those who are curious or adopting it. Teachers will study four CMP3 units in depth: Bits and Pieces (6th grade), Let’s Be Rational (6th grade), and Comparing and Scaling (7th grade), and Looking For Pythagoras (8th grade). Teachers will experience many lessons as students would in that they will solve many of the Problems in cooperative learning groups. We will also share best teaching practices for implementing these units. Our hope is to provide a “vertical” approach to learning CMP3 units each summer so that teachers in grades 6-8 can learn about the units in their grade levels as well as those above and/or below.
Math teachers in grades 5-8 are welcome, as well as others interested in learning more about CMP 3. Teachers new to CMP, teachers who have used CMP2, and teachers who are adopting CMP3 will benefit from this professional development.
Cost: The cost of CMP3 Training is $250 – you are not officially registered until we receive payment (or a purchase order from your school). Make checks payable to Wright State University. WSU graduate credit will be available for an additional cost of $250 for one semester hour of credit
