As a first-year math teacher the course helped me address my students’ different learning styles.
Angelika M. | Middle School Teacher, Math Deepening Conceptual Understanding Course
I was allotted a simplistic way to attempt new strategies and skills into my classroom. Additionally, I was able to easily adapt current materials to be used in conjunction with the new strategies I was studying. I would highly recommend this course.
