A variety of activities will be offered focusing on building awareness and knowledge of the new standards:
Navigating the new standards
Unwrapping the big ideas of the standards
Investigating the eight mathematical practices
Digging deeper into the three shifts – focus, coherence and rigor
Considering implications of implementing the new standards
