Teachers of high school mathematics will learn instructional strategies to expand skills, concepts, and assessment practices that can be incorporated into Honors mathematics in order to prepare students for success in AP Calculus and Statistics. We will look at what Honors math is designed to do as it prepares students for AP, and talk about how this can be accomplished through vertical teaming. Teachers will participate in activities that involve students in higher level thinking processes that reinforce the skills and concepts needed to be successful in upper level mathematical classes. Technology will be used to develop concepts and as a problem solving tool. We will do several hands-on activities that can be used in the classroom to teach or reinforce concepts. Teachers will also review and adapt AP problems that may be used to help facilitate student learning and to reinforce concepts at different grade levels.
