Study Skills Strategies for Mathematical Success – Summer Institute 2024

During this 2-day course, educators will learn how to present mathematical concepts in a way that builds their students’ problem solving tool-kits. Participants will study the ways in which math problems are presented, and how they can be adjusted in order to boost student engagement. This seminar will also cover ways to enhance note-taking and study skills within the math classroom so that students feel equipped to tackle problems from a variety of approaches. 

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of teaching note-taking in math
  • Guide students in building interactive notebooks to use as a developing resource
  • Create math problems that support students in becoming problem solvers and encourages them to utilize previously created resources
  • Generate practice problems that give students an opportunity to cycle back to previously learned skills



This course is appropriate for educators at the middle and high school levels. 



Materials will be provided on-site.
