Abstract

Most professional development occurs in a time that is inconvenient for teachers. Learn ways to improve teachers' mathematics knowledge and enable them to provide better instructions for students with the help of an online diagnostic assessment. Participants of this session will learn how district mathematics teachers used an online diagnostic model to understand and connect specific key ideas regarding mathematics operations and applications; the potential for introducing interdisciplinary mathematics scenarios to enhance student learning; and, understand and be able to teach mathematics applications with confidence.
