To help educators teach key elementary math concepts in an engaging way, Curriculum Associates is launching a free 10-part webinar series called Mathemagical Mindset: Creating Classrooms Where Students Thrive. During the webinars, which run from October 12 to November 10, 2021, math experts from Curriculum Associates will provide best practices, tips, and routines to help educators engage students in the learning process and cultivate a positive classroom culture.
“It goes without saying that students thrive when they are having fun while being engaged in the learning process,” said Elizabeth Peyser, national director of content and implementation at Curriculum Associates and one of the featured webinar presenters. “This new webinar series covers a variety of math topics and fresh ideas—from revising the mathematical mindset to experiencing math connections across grade levels to using academic routines and incorporating hands-on learning—that will help educators create an environment in which students can experience the magic of learning math.”
