    You're invited to Math in the Middle: A Plan to Engage and Motivate Middle School Students, a virtual event series highlighting the ins and outs of motivating students in middle school mathematics. Sessions run throughout April and early May, with recordings available for those who cannot join live.

    Middle school mathematics is tricky no matter which way you slice it. The mathematical content learned in these formative years lays the foundation for key concepts that will be used in all future math courses. Furthermore, as students learn these new and challenging concepts, they are experiencing many physical, social, and emotional changes. This makes teaching middle school mathematics as much of an art as it is a science. Join us for this webinar series dedicated to middle school mathematics, where we discuss fresh ideas and practical ways to engage students, increase their motivation, and develop independent mathematical thinkers.
