### Why Choose Us?

- We limit the scope of each workshop to specific Common Core State Standards and Principals and Standards of School Mathematics to insure an in-depth understanding of concepts and transfer of knowledge to the class-room.
- We guarantee the outcomes identified in each workshop description through research-validated methods and materials.
- Materials are field tested and mapped to Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, Common Core State Standards and expectations.
- We increase student achievements, generate teacher enthusiasm, and change attitudes towards the teaching and learning of mathematics.
- We give participants professionally prepared materials which are listed in workshop descriptions.
- We offer graduate credit and CEU's.

STANDARDS

According to **Common Core State Standards for Mathematics**, ... Standards define what students should understand and be able to do in their study of mathematics. (page 4, paragraph 3)

Standards from **Common Core State Standards:**

for Kindergarten students are found on pages 10, 11, and 12.

for students in Grade 1 are found on pages 13, 14, 15, and 16.

for students in Grade 2 are found on pages 17, 18, 19, and 20.

for students in Grade 3 are found on pages 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26.

for students in Grade 4 are found on pages 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 32.

STANDARDS

According to **Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, 2000**, Standards are descriptions of what mathematics instruction should enable students to know and do--statements of what is valued for school mathematics education. (page 7, paragraph 1)

**Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, 2000**, standards for:

Number and Operations for Pre-K - 2 and grades 3 - 5 are found on page 392, 402.

Algebra for Pre-K - 2 and grades 3 - 5 are found on page 394, 402.

Geometry for Pre-K-2 and grades 3 - 5 are found on page 396, 402.

Measurement for Pre-K - 2 and grades 3 - 5 are found on page 398, 402.
