Available Now


Open Up Resources Math 6-8 Curriculum units are designed to help students develop layers of understanding over time. To bring this to life, teachers need to understand the learning progression of a unit and how the lessons are sequenced to help students build conceptual understanding and procedural fluency over the course of a unit. In this 2-hour virtual workshop, participants will collaboratively plan an upcoming unit based on the learning progression.

This workshop can be completed as a stand-alone or as part of the Planning for Problem-Based Math series. Explore all workshops in the series below:


  • 2 hours
  • Participants will need a computer with access to Zoom, a camera, a microphone, and stable Internet connectivity


I leverage the curriculum’s problem-based structures to plan meaningful learning experiences for my students.
