supporting Cambridge public school students

Middle School Math Made Easy

Cambridge School Volunteers is holding an interactive workshop to help new and experienced tutors with upper school math. Led by 7th-grade Math Educator, Elsa Head, from the Vassal Lane Upper School, workshop participants will delve into the Math in Focus curriculum, learn how to engage students in math concepts, build confidence in students, and develop problem-solving skills. This session will cover what Math in Focus looks like in the classroom, review strategies from the curriculum, and engage tutors in problems from 6th-, 7th-, and 8th-grade math books.

This session will cover new concepts that were not covered in the fall session and will be relevant for both new and experienced upper school tutors.

The workshop will be held Tuesday, March 15th, 2016 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. at the Vassal Lane Upper School, 197 Vassal Lane, Cambridge, MA. (Note for Tuesday tutors—there is no tutoring that day, due to the early release day, so you don’t have to miss tutoring to attend.)
