Summary: Transform Teaching and Learning with MathXL for School

Explore strategies to seamlessly integrate MathXL® for School into classroom instruction. Participants discover powerful tools that enhance teaching and learning, differentiate instruction, and accurately assess student understanding of mathematical concepts. They learn how to create standards-aligned courses and customize homework and assessments. These course options include an introduction to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and focus on making the transition from state standards to the CCSS. Participants examine the role of administrators in Coordinator courses and explore the process for accessing, measuring, and analyzing school- or district-wide data. Participants learn how they can best implement the program to meet their own needs as educators as well as the needs of all their students.

OUTCOMES:
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
• Personalize and differentiate instruction using the program tools.
• Access individual or collective student data to analyze student performance and drive instructional decisions.
• Create standards-aligned homework and assessments within their course content.
• Apply ideas for how MathXL® for School can help teach standards based mathematics.
