For the Love of Math: 

Increasing Appreciation and Understanding for All Students

Instructors: Tony Whipps and Ashley Smith

It is important that ALL students connect with math in a way that allows them to achieve at high levels.  Teachers need students to love math and be able to see its beauty. We will dive into brain research and look at equity issues in math.  When teachers understand math in a new way they will inspire students to enjoy math class and be successful.  This class prepares you to do just that.  

For K-12 Teachers

This class is offered for 3 Quarter Credits

Student Testimonials:

After taking this course, I feel better equipped to return to the classroom and be a teacher that will foster math growth and excitement in every student.

TINT Student

This class has helped me understand the components of a successful math classroom and why they work.

TINT Student

I am excited for my future classroom and to be able to implement so many of the strategies I learned in this course.

TINT Student

I gathered more resources and was reminded of some others I'd forgotten while taking this course that I've been able to use immediately in my classroom. I found the additional materials, articles, etc, that were assigned to be helpful because they gave me new tools that I could use in my classroom.

TINT Student

After taking this course, I feel as though my commitment to building math concepts and number sense is even stronger. I don’t dread math time as much anymore since I’ve given myself the freedom, and my principal has as well, to do what I know is best for my students.

TINT Student

I am very pleased with the class and all of the useful information I have learned and I can’t wait to apply it in my classroom! Thanks again!
