Classroom and Professional Assistance:

2016 Summer Math Workshops at Principia School taught by math education author and consultant Henri Picciotto. For more information and to register please visit the workshop website .

We will be offering two workshops this summer:

Visual Algebra (Grades 6-9)
July 25–27, 2016    

In this three-day workshop, you will learn a wealth of visual approaches to teaching
algebra. Participants will also learn techniques to help them better serve a diverse range of students—making algebra more accessible while also expecting from students multifaceted understanding.

No Limits! (Algebra 2 through Precalculus)
July 28–29, 2016

This two-day workshop is designed for high school mathematics teachers who want to make Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Precalculus more accessible, richer, and more fun. Participants will explore several activities designed to enrich and deepen their lessons for the following topics: concrete introductions to exponential, logarithmic, inverse variation, and trigonometric functions; iterating functions as a gateway to sequences, series, mathematical induction, and chaos; function diagrams; the geometry of the parabola (2D, 3D); and more!

A more complete description of the workshops topics may be found on our website .

The workshops include breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

 

Early Bird Rates (good through May 2, 2016):
Visual Algebra (3 days): $550
No Limits! (2 days): $350
Both Workshops (5 days): $800
Discounts are available if registering more than 4 people from the same school or district.

 

REGISTER TODAY!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email me.
We hope to see you this summer!
