Build Your Mathematics Program Like a Strong, Healthy and Balanced Tree with Research Informed Strategies That are Accessible, Equitable and Sustainable over time.
In this course we’ll focus on the trunk of your tree: Classroom Pillars & Norms.
The trunk represents your classroom norms: without clear, concise and productive classroom norms, students do not have a consistent vision for this mathematics community, why it is important or how to make the vision a reality.

Your Call To Action: Transform your mathematics program by establishing clear, concise classroom norms that model what YOU value in your classroom.
If we are to promote student success in our classrooms, then we’ll need to craft and communicate clear expectations of what is valued to build that success.
Many teachers will begin their school year with outlining the syllabus or going over the school handbook. Instead, show students what you value in your math classroom from the first day and ensure the activities, lessons, and resources you leverage celebrate and encourage those values.
Make Math Moments uses a framework that will help you to clarify your values by selecting what is most important to you and your students. You’ll learn how to use our guiding prompts so you can develop your classroom pillars and then build them with your students.
Let’s build your classroom pillars as a team.
