Implementation of a problem-based math curriculum is a multi-year process where teachers and leaders build ownership over the instructional shifts that support student-centered math teaching and learning. In this 2-hour virtual workshop, school leaders will build an understanding of the curriculum’s goals and complete a self-assessment of their school community’s current stage of curriculum implementation.
