“One of the best workshops I have ever attended. "Active" says it all!”
This was the most worthwhile workshop I have taken for teaching my 6th-grade math class. It was filled with thought-provoking activities.
Every ActiveMath Workshop I have attended provided me with more information and methods on teaching math than any methods course.
A hands-on workshop promoting investigation that gets your brain thinking like a student again.
