Increasing engagement in the K-12 math classroom through FREE full-day math-specific professional development and YOU are invited!

Indiana Department of Education’s (IDOE) math specialists from the Office of School Improvement are organizing another professional development series to continue our support of a vision for ambitious instruction in the K-12 math classroom! Participants will explore and develop rich tasks that support the Eight Mathematics Teaching Practices as outlined in NCTM’s publication Principles to Action (2014). In this interactive and engaging full day session, participants will discover how to open up traditionally closed problems to promote student discourse, provide opportunities for productive struggle, and to support students in risk-taking and sense-making. Guided implementation and collaboration opportunities will be embedded throughout the day. Classroom teachers and coaches are the target audience, although the support of building level administrators is highly encouraged!


  • 5 PGP’s will be given for educators who attend the full day professional development
  • Educators should bring a laptop or other device
  • Each site will have the following schedule, with minor variations in time, dependent upon location:
    • 8:30am – 2:30pm with a 1-hour lunch on your own
  • Space is limited to 150 educators (75 secondary and 75 elementary) at each location so sign up quickly to reserve your seat!
