Current employment trends and future projections all point towards continued growth in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) jobs, as well as the need for STEM-related skills in other fields. Yet, recent math proficiency levels among American students remain low, at just 44% in fourth grade and 33% at the eighth-grade level, and the math score trend lines are not showing significant improvement.
In this edWebinar, we’ll discuss resources that help promote mathematical thinking, ideas for implementing strategic classroom changes, and activities to ensure a powerful transformation.
